Thumbs up Building a new Computer!

Okay, so I need to give a backstory, I'm helping a friend with building a new computer. Now, as I know what I'm talking about, I relatively could use some help giving him parts. His budget is $2,000. Here's what I got so far;

Processor - AMD FX-8350 Black Edition 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ ($189.99)
Graphics - (2x) Nvidia GeForce 750 ti FTW ($159.99 x 2)
Cooling - CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Water Cooler ($99.99)
Hard Drive - WD Purple WD20PURX 2TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive ($99.99)
RAM - Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory ($79.99)
Motherboard - GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD5H ATX Intel Motherboard ($189.99) [Comes with Diablo 3]
Power Supply - EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2 220-G2-0750-XR 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD ($114.99)
Sound Card - HT | OMEGA Claro Halo XT Sound Card w/ a built-in HI-FI Headphone Amplifier ($249.99)
OS - Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit - OEM ($99.99)
Mouse - Mad Catz R.A.T. Tournament Edition Mouse ($79.99)
Keyboard - Razer DeathStalker Expert Gaming Keyboard ($68.99)

Total: 1593.88 (Almost everything is on Sale.)

If you're going to add something, there I brands I wouldn't give an enemy of mine. Theses brands are; Intel (They cost too much for such powerless performance), ATI (They're inferior to AMD). That's it. Anyhow, Read up, and have fun. Hell, maybe I took the liberty of giving him my wishlist of parts but oh well, Hahah!

Before I even respond to this thread, I have to seriously ask if you're trolling or not. Because it really seems like you are I'm not even going to bother with a legit response right now.

Intel at this point out performs AMD by a long shot for gaming, I see this a trolling myself and for $2000 you could build the top end Intel build.

The reason I said that is because he has a 2000 dollar budget, selects 2 low end cards instead of a midrange or high end card (or two), has a surveillance HDD selected, and the cherry on top is the part about Intel but has an Intel board selected.

How about ATI inferior to AMD? They are one in the same lol.

If Intel is such prowless performance lol maybe he has a slow internet connection and he posted this when AMD was kicking the pentium 4 in the @SS, Might be he's using dial up lol

FX 8320 overclocks to whatever an FX 8350 can for the most part. Keep in mind it'll hog upwards of 200 watts, which leads to high temps, and reduced cpu life span. All while severely under performing an 84 watt Intel counterpart.

Grab the i5 4570, it'll out pace an FX 8350, and with reduced heat output.
