Opinions for my First Build

So I'm kinda new to the PC gaming scene and I could really use your guys' opinion on my build. I've been told by others that its pretty solid for its price, but I'm curious as to how it would run a few games that I plan on playing on it. These include Dark Souls 2, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Civ 5, and BorderLands the Pre-Sequel. I'm fairly certain that it can handle DKS II, Skyrim, and Civ 5 pretty well, but I'm really not sure about Pre-Sequel. Here is my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/MVtf23 Thanks in advance!

Oh yeah, and Diablo 3.

Go for an R9 285 instead of that 760. Either that or you could wait a few weeks for the 960 that will likely blow both of these cards out of the water.

Can you give me a link to the R9 285?

How much will this out-perform the 760? I want to make sure the change is somewhat significant, as I am on a rather tight budget, and I don't really want to spend much more than I already am.

very significantly. The 280 already beats the 760 by a little, and the 285 gets about 10FPS better in most games. Look up JayzTwoCents's review.

Okay, great. I'll be sure to do more research on this card, as it seems to have great potential.
