Looks good, it won't max out everything 1080p 60fps but you can play all games.

Heck my PC doesn't even max out Crysis 3.

Do you think he should axe the SSD and maybe get a better GPU?

After having used an SSD for a few months I'd say keep it and just upgrade the gpu later when it's not getting the settings he wants.

You could knock down the PSU and get a 7970 or something instead for more GPU power.

Yeah I would hate to give up my SSD too but will his 760 really hold?

Could you recommend a PSU/budget 7970?

Assuming a $1000 budget, I swapped some stuff to fit in a 7970.

Yean Snuckies build is better, also right now I'm seeing your first build, and I don't see the need for 750W, you can't SLI with that motherboard, so all 400 watts would be going to waste.
