New Build- Looking for opinions on chosen components.

Hey all, just wondering what you guys think of this build. No monitor needed, and this will be overclocked for gaming as well as used for some video editing and music software.
Tell me if you think I should change anything, but for real reasons and not company biased opinions. Thank you. :)

  1. Not so happy w/cpu & VGA

    1- GET 8350 directly.... vishera is more potent in games than bulldozer (the sorry excuse for processor... total fiasco)

    2- not very happy of VGA, no.1 you don't need 3GB unless you plan multi-monitor gaming,besides you need a SUPERCLOCKED one for OC(as u stated)

    get this :

    cheaper and top-class brand and SUPERCLOCKED

    The Rest is great

    best wishes

    Alright, I'll get the 8350. But this card came out a couple monthes ago, and it is the OverClock edition. It also holds cool temperatures. And I got it brand new for 200 dollars off ebay, forgot to mention I bought this already XD

    And thank you :)

    Any thoughts on what keyboard I should get? ...I'm stuck on that.
    And I will be running a couple monitors, sometimes a single. But not to often.
  3. Okay so I changed a couple things from the first post.
    I went with 16gb 2x8GB 1866 Ripjaws

    This is my favorite but your keyboard ROCKS

    The PSU seems too much than you actually need but if you got already ... congrats
    Great build , my friend
