It's my 1st time building a computer from scratch. I would LOVE extra opinions on my build. I'm already over my max but it's fine. But I don't want to go higher.
What I want is a gaming computer that will be able to handle games coming out in the next few years, like Shadows of Mordor and Dragon Age Inquisition. Not big into FPS's so I don't need something that will handle fast paced action but I would like to have one just because. Sandbox games and RTS's are mainly what I play.

Here are the links to the parts.

At that budget point, you really should be looking at an SSD for OS/boot. For gaming, the extra virtual cores offered by the i7's hyper-threading aren't worth the extra ~$100.
Personally, I'd look at a Core i5 and an SSD (~120GB).
