Feel free to leave a comment there or reply here.
Thanks in advance.

I've improved a LOT, in quality but also a bit in price.
(READ THE NOTES ON THERE!)

Now, I just need help with the CPU Cooling and the PSU.
(AGAIN READ THE NOTES ON THERE FOR DETAILS!)

Yay, looks like the only thing I'm hesitating at is my PSU. :p

If this is a gaming build, how come you aren't going with a quad core i5?

Dude !! the FX-8350 better than most of i5 processor in term of performance using all cores ! but what is making the i5 better for gaming is that games are using 4 cores and less for gaming so that Fx-8350 is not able to use it all performance for gaming at the moment , but who knows ?? there is news talking about the ability of next gen games of using all cores , so that FX-8350 will perform much better than most of the i5 processor if that news are true !

however , that FX-8350 is not weak , it's only about 2 ~ 5 FPS worse than i5 processor , sometimes better by 2~5 , it's performance is very similar to the i5 processor in gaming ! well it's better if we are talking about value & overclocking !

am using the same CPU , It's Awesome for gaming ! am very happy with it + it has much better performance for 3d work , editing & stuff .

@ Jordsie go ahead buddy !! you'r build looks perfect to me :)  . Good Luck .

Okay, aside from the whole war about the FX or the i5.
But I'm still with this same problem:
Quote:
Please let me know where parts can get better for an equal price, or where it could get cheaper with none/minimal quality loss. I also don't know shit about what fans I should get and which PSU I should get. (c.a. 100 watts more than required, I guess. But there are 100s of those.)

Also I want to go with a Radeon HD 7970 but I don't know which one I should get.

And shouldn't I get another PSU FROM SeaSonic? Or is this the one I should really get, I just want confirmation :)
