Hey all. I decided to go with an AMD processor this time. What do you think of my build. Any suggestions?http://
I plan on overclocking also.

It's a nice build. However, if you want to stick with AMD I would go with an FX 6300/6350. To me, if you are going to spend $200 on a cpu, might as well get an i5-3570k or Haswell. The FX 6300/6350 are excellent bang for the buck. The FX 8350 won't perform much, if any, better in games. You could take the cash saved and apply to the GPU.

This. Getting an 8 core processor is complete overkill and is completely pointless unless you do insane video editing. Like he said, an i5 or fx 6300 would be much better value for the price

Alright. I switched to the FX 6300 and decided to upgrade to the gtx 670. Is this a good change? Also, the AMD FX-4350 Vishera caught my eye. Why shouldn't i get this over the FX 6300?

The GTX 670 is a good change. You can never have too much GPU =)

As far as FX-4350 vs. FX-6300, it kind of depends on whether you plan to overclock or not. From what I have read, getting the FX-6300 up to 4.2ghz should not be difficult. For myself (and this is purely my preference) I would rather have the extra cores, just in case I am running something that can use them.
