I'm Getting a New Computer

Now I want to say first, I am not getting a sound card yet, I already have a CD-Drive from a older computer, and I'm taking some RAM out of my current computer to put into the new one.

Now anyways, here are my parts:

Processor: AMD FX-8350 Vishera - 4.0GHZ 8-CORE Black Edition

Video Card: GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7950 3GB GDDR5

Motherboard: GIGABYTE AM3+ AMD 990FX

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 1TB

Case: Rosewill Challenger Gaming Tower

Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 80 Plus Bronze 750 Watt

RAM: 16 GB DDR3 1333MHZ

So, this is also my first custom built computer. I'm having some friends come over and help build it with me. Then my clumsier friends will come over after we're done(don't want them dropping something :P), and I'm going to download Bioshock Infinite, Crysis 3, and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and play all night.


Any tips or advice on how to build it or what to do and look out for?
