    if this is a gaming build than invest more in the graphic card get a fx 8320 and overclock it to perform same as the fx 8350
    and get a better card like
    hd 7950 or gtx 660 ti
    also wd green hdd is not that good wd blue would be better
    also 16gb ram is a bit overkill get 8gb it is enough for gaming

    Agreed, this is definitely a worth while trade off, when the 8320 is overclocked it is pretty much exactly the same as the 8350. Even if you don't overclock it, it's not that much of a loss. A better graphics card makes the most difference.

    Thanks for your Opinion, i am planning to use this pc for video,picture editing and gaming. not extreme gaming but maybe some games like battlefield3 and GTA V when it comes out. I am hoping the PC will last me a few years without making any majors upgrade overtime
  6. saying how long the pc will last is difficult but the pc u r buying is pretty good for the price

    Thanks :) this is my first build. at first i was thinking on going with a i5 3470 but the build was just way to expensive.Should i add any other cooling systems since i am overclocking the processor?
  8. it is a good air cooler u can push the cpu around 4.5ghz with that
    but later u can get liquid cooler if u want to overclock it more

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008S15X3W/ref=gno_cart_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER ......will this GTS660 Ti do the job ? 2GB of graphic card is enough ? or should i get EVGA GeForce GTX 660Ti SUPERCLOCKED......http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008S15X64/ref=gno_cart_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER.
    I also want to ask if the GTX650Ti Boost SuperClocked 2GB will perform same as a GTX660?
  11. 2gb is enough for any game at 1080p but personally i would recommend a ASUS GeForce GTX 660 Ti Direct CU II 2 GB
    the review shows that gtx 660 is 3% powerful than sc 650 ti boost but the gtx 660 is a stock one a factory overclocked would perform better
