Re: Can I build this myself for cheaper?

That Biostar board is fine, it has 13 phase power design and solid caps. Just be aware that it only has two SATA III ports.

You might get a slightly nicer board with an Asus, Asrock, Gigabyte, or MSI.

If you plan to expand to multiple GPUs, get the 750w PSU you selected. Otherwise the 550 one is fine.

I have heard that XFX has atrocious customer service, you may want to select a different brand of GPU.
