So I am very close to ordering my parts for my first build, and I just wanted the Pro's opinions on it. the build is:

AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition
MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 FM2 AMD A75
PowerColor Ax7850
Team Dark Series 8GB DDR3-1600
Western Digital WD Blue 1TB
Coolmax Zx Series Zx500 500w PSU
Cooler Master HAF 912

Soooo..... are all of the parts compatabile with one another and is this a decent system?
Thanks in advance, Aeouq

i understand like one has higher graphics but lower clock rate and textures, i would go with the 7850 since its 2gb now that i look at it.

I think I would rather stick with the Phenom seeing that it is a quad core and most games in the future will be utilizing the extra power of the quad core. Is there anything else I should add to my build?

So if I ordered all these parts, and I had them all in front of me right now, I could build a computer and start running games?
