Hello this is going to be my first build and just got in to PC gaming. The components i think i am going to buy are.

Processor:AMD A10-5800K APU 3.8Ghz Processor AD580KWOHJBOX

Motherbord: MSI Socket FM2/AMD A75/DDR3/SATA3&USB3.0/A&GbE/MicroATX Motherboard FM2-A75MA-E35

Video card: XFX Double D FX-785A-CDFC Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

RAM :Corsair Vengeance Blue 8 GB (2X4 GB) PC3-12800 1600mHz DDR3 240-Pin SDRAM Dual Channel Memory Kit CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B

Power supply: Corsair Builder Series CX 430 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS (CX430)

I do plan on overclocking to 4.2Ghz so what would be a good cooling option in the 60-70 range. I also want to be able to run most games at high that came out last year and this year up coming. My main concern is is this graphics card going to last 2 years with the new games coming out or should i just get a cheaper one and wait. Another question is is the 200 price point on the 7850 2Gb even worth it or are there better cheaper solutions. Thanks

get a fx processor or an i3/i5 that suites your budget, the apu makes no sense when having a discrete graphics card.
edit: you can save alot when getting an amd phenom ii x4 965 and spend some more on the gpu (I recommend the hd 7870xt or the gtx 660)

Bump up your supply to 500W. The Corsair is good as is Antec, Seasonic and XFX.

430 watt will be plenty.

I would recommend changing the cpu to the amd fx 6300. It is quite a bit better than the a10 5800k. The fx out classes any i3 processor. i5 would be better, but that all depends on your budget.
With the fx cpu you will have to change your motherboard from an fm2 socket to an am3 socket. I would recommend the asrock 960 extreme 3 r2. It's a great budget mobo.
I would also recommend getting a 600w psu. Your build is very similar to mine, and I use a 650w psu. The corsair cx series is a great budget psu.
