Need help on building first computer, advice?
I'm reposting this so I can get as much advice possible.
So posted a question before listing my build and took advice, and changed things up so this is what it looks like
Case: COOLER MASTER HAF 912 RC-912-KKN1 Black SECC/ ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Motherboard: ASUS F2A85-V PRO FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Videocard: EVGA 02G-P4-3658-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST SuperClocked 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
PSU: Rosewill CAPSTONE-750 750W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Active PFC Power Supply
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R
Processor: AMD A10-5800K Trinity 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7660D AD580KWOHJBOX
Internal SSD: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Now I know 250GB is crazy low but it's all I can afford right now but I'll buy another 250GB in a about a month after I put my computer together.
Now what else do I need to upgrade/downgrade
I plan on just playing like WoW. SWTOR, And elder scrolls online when it comes out.
Will I be able to play these games on high or ultra?

Imo ditch the SSD and get a 1TB hard drive. Besides that everything is fine besides the power supply could go down about 100 watts (if you wanted to save more money) I have the same video card as you and I get 50 fps in WoW on ultra about 40 in mop zones.

get 120(128)GB SSD and 1TB HDD. It will cost less than 250GB SSD. That way you can put OS on SSD and store games on HDD. With SSD your system will boot in 20 seconds, where with HDD it might take more than 2 minutes. Everything else looks ok, just.. Why take APU box. I would get i3-3220 or FX6300. Both the same price as A10-5800K. I prefer intel because it's cooler and more power efficient, but FX is also ok. With that you will have amazing rig.
Notice that if you choose i3, you will need different MoBo.

You should be fine but I'd get a 1tb hdd instead. They're less expensive and more memory. SSD is faster but for gaming the only thing you get is better load time, not that important.
