Hey, I'm new to building a pc, and I've got a few parts already in my head, I would be using this pc for hopefully maxing out most games, like skyrim, gta v, and bf4, the specs are
CPU: Fx 8350 black edition
Video card: Asus r9 290 Direct cuII 4gb
Mother board: Asrock 990fx extreme 3
Ram: 2x4 corsair vengeance
Cpu cooler: cooler master hyper 212 evo
Psu: corsair builder series CXM 750w my budget is 800, but can go to 850 if I have to, and I don't need an os, thanks

Change to an i5 4440, Asus H81 motherboard, ditch the 212 EVO, change to the CS650 PSU, and you should have enough cash to spare to get a 970. This would give you more performance in games than your current setup.
