Gaming PC Build *Last check*

So I have finally decided what components I will be getting:

CPU: Intel Core i5 4670
CPU Cooler: None yet
GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU II OC
PSU: XFX Pro Series 550W Core Edition
MoBo: Gigabyte H87-D3H
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3-1600 CL9 kit
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB (SATA3, 64MB)
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224DB Black
Case: Thermaltake Armor Revo Gene Black

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium

I might get a CPU cooler after noticing my CPU is running too hot. A friend of mine who has recently bought the same CPU says it's definitely not necessary for me to get an aftermarket cooler. I wil make sure to build up a nice air flow in the case.

I want to thank the community for answering my previous questions and I hope that you guys will let me know if this build is ready for purchase!

i5 4670 is a great choice for nowdays games ... but the FX-8350 would be better for the future since most of the newer games will be optimized for 8 cores as Kirilmatt said ..

i was confused between the FX-8350 and the i5 4670 , the FX-8350 was my choice and am happy with it .

FX-6300 will do you nicely. Easy overclocker. For CPU get Closed loop liquid cooler (for example the h60) if you are going to overclock. I personally would get a 600w+ PSU, (Corsiar, XFX or Seasonic) Apart from that your system is good.

Yes but it still performs excellently when overclocked. Plus his PSU is weak and the FX-6300 is very good for low power consumption. Dude go with AMD CPU. You can then invest in a better CPU cooler.

AMD fan boys out today.... I would love to see data suggesting AMD is ahead of Intel actually. I used to be a huge fan of AMD backin the day - but they have seriously fallen behind the past few generations. i7-3770k can still outperform a 8350. Sorry but thems the facts jack. And i'm not sure where you are seeing the "games made for 8core" thing. AMDs website? Rather than just telling a person what to do, usually better to show them why - as in data, tests, fact - not just opinion because you like it :)  Not trying to say any of you are wrong or right, just saying where is the proof of this? I haven't seen it so I am curious.

@OP Anyway, rather than getting tons of opinions - let's deal with the facts of what you have chosen:
PSU given the Haswell and the GPU you have chosen is ok - but definitely on the line of bare minimum. I would highly advise considering a 650w for a little headroom. Stressing a PSU consistently causes higher temps, as well as shortened lifespan.

As far as a cooler, should you stay with stock speeds, yes you could keep the stock cooler. If you chose to do ANY overclocking you will need to get an aftermarket cooler

Buddy , that's true even the i5-3570 better than the FX-8350 in games that uses less than 8 cores , but in game like battlefield 3 which is using the whole core of the processor , the FX-8350 is better .

if the upcoming games will not use 8 cores technology , so why the Xbox One and PS4 are using 8 cores processors ?? think about it buddy , i know that the single-threaded performance is way better in the i5/i7 but if we gonna talk about multi-threaded performance , the FX-8350 will win for sure .

show me the data :)  all i'm asking. Buddy.... lol

But rather than hijacking a thread improperly, I encourage you to open a thread to discuss it - always up to learn something I didn't know before. I just like to see data rather than opinion. Either way, thread is about OP - so let's keep it to that
