[Build Ready] Never built a PC, looking for advice

After asking on some other forums and looking at various articles, I have picked out a tentative parts list. I figured I would ask for some second opinions from a different forum before I started the actual shopping.
Some things to note;
Budget: My original budget was 800-1200 USD -- this includes OS/peripherals/monitoaccessories and maybe a chair if I have the money leftover for it. I already have a Samsung LCD TV for big picture stuff. I thought this was a good range for the performance that I want (though I could be wrong). It looks like I'm going to be over after the aforementioned extras, but I'm not that fussed since my TF2 pack is basically paying for everything.
I'm not overclocking (don't need it), but I did pick some overclock-ready parts since they weren't that much more expensive. This is going to be my only computer for a while, and I was advised that overclocking later can increase PC lifespan
Purpose: gaming, with some movies and light schoolwork (typing etc.). I'm not going to be rendering video, streaming, or any other intensive activities. I also heard bitcoin mining was no longer profitable due to electricity costs.
Benchmark games: Titanfall, Evil Within, Borderlands; The Pre-Sequel(split screen), Metro: Redux, etc. I'm going to be playing a mix of new and old releases, and I don't need maximum settings or 200 FPS. This is going to be my only computer for a while, however, so the more stuff it can handle, the better.
Previous computer building experience: zero (unless you count that one middle school project). I did watch that newegg youtube tutorial and read that one reddit guide, but other than that I'm still pretty new to this.
Other notes: Space is not a concern. I have a decently sized desk and won't be moving any time soon.

[Build Help] R9 280x benchmarks lower than 7970?

Sapphire 3dMark 280x
XFX 3dMark 7970
I bought a used 280x to sli with my 7970 off ebay and was expecting it out preform my 7970 slightly. Was disappointed when it benchmark lower. Is it slightly defective or is anything wrong or its just something that might happen?
I am NOT new to ebay even though I have no feedback. I am simply starting a new account because I am selling some things for a friend and I want to keep it separate. Thanks
What I have is a slightly used graphics card. It was used for less then one week and comes with everything including the box. They were used to bitcoin process. I have about 15 total of this model.
Sapphire Radeon R9 280X 3GB GDDR5 DVI-I/DVI-D/HDMI/DP Dual-X OC version (UEFI) PCI-Express Graphics Card
If it's a big discrepancy from what it should be, should i try to return?

[Build Help] $1500 gamer, multi-screen capability, with some scryptcoin mining/protein folding/video editing on the side

I tried this in /buildapcforme and didn't get any response, but I don't think I need help from scratch since I already have an idea of what I want in terms of parts, so here's a shortened copypaste:
Uses:
Budget: As cheap as possible. I'll go over no more than $2000 if need be for the triple-monitor capability.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
If there's any specific features you want/need from the rig, please list them.
Do you have any specific case preferences such as a window or LEDs, or do you have a preference for low-noise components?

With that build, what are your thoughts on the 2x R9 280x's? I'm having trouble finding comparable benchmarks, other than this which only compares it to lower-scoring GPUs. I see them as providing a fair amount of number crunching capability (aka mining), as well as being still top-of-the-line graphics for gaming. I probably shouldn't concern myself with mining if I can get a better performance out of games with a single GPU for less $.
I've never SLI'd or CF'd and everywhere I see it mentioned, I notice people have problems with it or that it doesn't always work. What should I know about multi-GPU setups?
I notice a lot of budget builds use an AMD CPU. How much can I expect out of the 4770k over a similar AMD cpu like the FX-9590 or 8350 (a much cheaper one), aside from the marginal chance in benchmark scores?
I could save getting a cheaper PSU probably.
I live near a Microcenter. I'm guessing their prices are lower for pickups.
Sorry for the long post. I hope it doesn't scare anyone off! I'm just not going to drop $1,500 without properly educating myself first.
Thanks!

[build help] This is my first gaming build, anything you would do different?

My goal is to be able to play Skyrim (with HD mods), Battlefield 4, Final Fantasy xiv, and whatever new kick ass shit comes out at max graphics, Maybe do some bitcoin mining. Questions, Is over clocking something i should consider? Am i really going to notice a difference if i speed up my cpu .5 Ghz? I've read that people buy cheeper AMD cpu and over clock them to match the performance of higher tier processors. I think I'd rather play it safe and just shell out the extra $$ for an Intel i5 and wait till it cant keep up with the latest new kick ass shit to over clock. Is that a good plan? how long do you think till its out of date and i have to upgrade? I know i should install windows on my SSD but what else? In order to have the cleanest PC possible what should i keep on my SSD and what should I keep on my HD? Is a 120g ssd 1tb hd enough? im really just going to use this for gaming and to hold my music collection. My budget is around $900-1000 anyway you can help me get the most bang for my buck would be awesome. Anybody know of any best black friday/ cyber monday deals? Sorry if some of these are dumb questions, Im am not a very smart man.

[Build Ready] My new Project, Gaming and Video Machine

Ok I'm back and pretty much ready to pull the trigger, just want some feedback as this will be my first true build. I've upgraded old machines int he past but this is the first from scratch.
I'm replacing a 2010 Mac Pro, 6-core Xeon machine. I used it for video editing but now my Macbook Pro has enough power to do what I need to do, that I woudl rather switch back to a Windows based desktop for more gaming, but still have the option to capture/edit video. Feedback is welcome, I have overridden the buying options as I have Amazon prime, and will save on shipping. Also it appears B&H is the only ones not to jack up the price of R9 cards for the bitcoin kiddies, though I guess I shouldn't say that too loudly. Anyway at first I was goign to go GTX 770 or 780 but I like what I'm hearing about the R9 and games down the road, plus my current ATI HD 5800 has served me well in the Mac Pro. Pricing isn't much of an issue, I can get a good ammount of money for the Mac Pro, I'll be ripping out some 1TB WD Black Drives out of it for the new machine.

[WTS] [New Orleans] [H] 7x GPU Scrypt Mining Rig 3-3.4MH/s [W] PayPal , Bitcoin

Physical timestamp Pics
$2500 if paid with Bitcoin. I'd most preferably take Bitcoin, as that'd result in me giving you the best price possible since theres NO FEES. Don't buy it through eBay, they charge out the rear in fees. If you want to go that route, let's do PayPal. Send me a message!
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=131147816958
I'm pasting the description from eBay:
7 GPU mining rig in a custom aluminum structure that I built. Pushes as much as 3.4MH/s but I'll ship it at about 3+MH/s to give you something reliable to start on.
I URGE you to read my Reddit threads and dig into the comments for a great deal of information about this rig. You may see me mentioning a Semphron 145 processor- that thing was terrible and made the rig unstable so I upgraded it to a AMD FX-6300 6-core 3.5GHz processor and the now rig screams. Massive difference with a high-end processor. Runs games on ultra/max settings, obviously ;)

I want to throw in a newbish disclaimer. I must impress upon you the fact that this is a mining rig running Linux. If you're not good with computers then mining might not be for you. I don't care if you've upgraded your own RAM or hard drive one time, that means nothing. You need to be proficient with computers to own a mining rig running Linux. Most of the dirty work is done with this rig. It's been running SMOOTH for months now.
I'll ship it to where you can plug it in and it will automatically turn on and start mining in Linux. It will also have Windows installed, but you'll have to do a little legwork getting the drivers installed to run all 7 video cards- I wasn't interested in Windows mining so I didn't bother getting the 7th going- I got 6 video cards mining in Windows. The drivers have come out to make all 7 work but like I said- Linux mining works fine for me.
As with any rig, we're pushing these cards to the limit. You'll have to check on the rig periodically to make sure cgminer is not reporting any SICK/DEAD cards. That's normal, as with any mining rig the cards can hang or overheat and protect themselves by shutting off. You'd still be mining on all the other cards, only that one card drops offline. All mining rigs do this when you're pushing max hashrate.
I like to use the Belkin WeMo to remotely monitor my wattage, if it drops below a threshold I know I've got a dropped card and I can reset the rig remotely, it automatically boots back up and starts mining again. There's other options like CGwatcher that are pretty slick, but I've found what works for me and I'll stick to it.
It can be run fairly quiet. I ran it with no external cooling fans for a while successfully at about 3.2MH/s. I since threw some fans back on it since I don't like keeping the AC on all day and its warming up outside. Fans are included.
I offer support. I want to see my creation keep digging for a long time, that said I'll support you in getting it started back up in its new home. Check my Reddit threads for references, I know damned well what I'm talking about and I'll see to it that you get up and running.
I'm not accepting returns on this rig. Its sold as-is. Because these are sensitive electronic components, I can't be responsible for your damaging it. Its a tough well built rig, I assure you. It will work 100% when I shut it down, it should work 100% when you receive it.
Before buying or bidding I HIGHLY SUGGEST you drop me a message so we can sort out the details and make sure that this is the right rig for you!
I did the parts breakdown up on PC parts picker and it came up pretty fair. Note that their price does not include assembly labor, setup and tuning, or love and affection :)

DogeMiner

Looking at making a rig dedicated solely to mining cryptocurrency (DogeCoin). Doge is a little different from Bitcoin - so ASIC miners won't work.
I'm really just trying to squeeze as many R9 280Xs into a computer as I can, without bottlenecking them. My question is: will my CPU or RAM bottleneck? Are they overkill?

I know it would be more cost-effective to just get two of the Mk. 1 build, but I think the plan might be to only get a single R9 280X, and then add the rest individually as I get the cash. Plus 4-way CX is sick-nasty.
