Recently bought built a new computer. Hoping you guys can give me feedback and suggestions. I'm all ears for criticism.

HDD (Hard drive):

PSU (Power Supply):

EVGA SuperNOVA NEX750G 80PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V/EPS12V 750W Power Supply 120-PG-0750-GR ~ $118.20

Computer Case:

That's pretty good. Two things I would change are processor and add an SSD. I like the Intel 3570K or 4670K, I know they will last and are better performers then most AMD chips. With that said, I know I wouldn't have a bottleneck between CPU & GPU. The SSD to me allows all other hardware to run as fast as they can. But I see a solid build there, so enjoy...
