I'd go with a more reliable brand of RAM personally. Corsair, G.Skill or something along those lines.

It's better to have a 7950 and an FX 6300 for gaming.

but OC 7870 and FX 8350 will be nice..overall.. and last for a while... bcz upcoming games will run over 8 threads...

Why does everyone think that? The PS4 and XB1 have 2 cores reserved for the OS, so only 6 cores will be used for games. I highly doubt we will see games commonly and efficiently using 8 threads anytime soon.
