Default How is this build?

I quickly tried to put something together online for around $600-$700, but I'm not a huge hardware person and I don't even know if these parts work together, or if there's a way to lower the price/make it better for the same price. Let me know your opinions:
Newegg.ca Shopping Cart

Not bad. Not bad at all. I would change the case to a corsair carbide 200r but that's about it.

I made an entire list of the parts you wanted (With some minor changes) on PCPartPicker. Tell me what you think.

Craig Prince's build is where its at. Change graphics card to gaming edition like dev said but that's a really solid build.

Yeah lot better with the MSI Gaming edition R9 270 you just move all the sliders to their max in MSI afterburner and wala it performs better than the R9 270X for about $30-$40 less than a reference R9 270X
