  1. Hello Sammy,

    First id recommend looking at or TigerDirect instead of amazon. If your just using this computer for gaming, the eight core is overboard and I woud look at the fx 6000 series.

    the mobo looks good, ram looks good, hdd looks good,

    Cabinet = Case and look at a

    fans case I don't know what you mean but the case comes with fans and there housings.

    A decent cheap cpu cooler is

  2. PC Partpicker is your friend. This is all from Amazon, wasn't much a price difference compared to other vendors.

  3. Are there any better mobo than the one I chose. For overlooking?
  4. The 990FX is the better chipset for overclocking AMD chips, but for $700 you could also switch to intel for better per-core performance. If you budget in $100 for a great case, buy a i5-3570k or 4670k ($200-250), $75 for a really good heatsink, $75 for ram, that still leaves $200 for storage.

    At this point you are looking at personal preference and cost/value. I tend to spend more on motherboards then I need to and get expensive chips that will last me 3 or 4 years, but I don't like unforeseen difficulties and trust in getting quality for the price.
