Does this seem like a good build?

I recently decided to build a new computer, and so I had someone pick out the parts. I'm not an expert so I'm not sure if this is a good build or not. Opinions wanted~

  1. Yes, good for the price, good PSU, GPU should handle 1080P gaming for the most part, i5's are good for cpu intensive stuff.
  2. Purely based on your choice for core components, which cost 728 dollars, I'd get this instead:

    I'd go with 2x4Gb or 2x8GB RAM.
    Dual Channel does influence performance.

    You could go for a Seasonic G or XFX TS PSU.
    While the EVGA G2 is great the two mentioned won't perform any worse not will they break any sooner and are usually a few $ cheaper
  4. If you have the mad OCD like me, you'll probably hate the fact that the 2x 6+2's are semi modualr but G series are good units.
