First Computer Build, Advice Needed!

I was told that it would be good to re-post this question during the weekend because of items going on sale and better prices. Now, I've reached my absolute limit of $670 and I really can't go any higher than that. So right now, I'm basically asking if all these parts are compatible and that they will work together. However, if you find a cheaper/better part then mine, I'd be happy to hear it :).
(All parts will be bought off of Newegg)

Parts:
1.)(Combo)CPU-AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor

2.)(Combo)Storage-Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Combo: $251.98

3.)GPU-SAPPHIRE 100355-1GOCL Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card OC Version-$144.99

4.)PSU-SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply-$64.99

5.)Motherboard-ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS-$84.99

6.)RAM-CORSAIR Vengeance 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model-$37.99

7.)Case-COOLER MASTER HAF series RC-912-KKN4 Black SECC/ ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case-$49.99

8.)Optical Drive-LITE-ON DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 - OEM-$17.99

Shipping-$13.43

Total-$671.76

Now before you guys start freaking out about the RAM, I was able to get a free 4GB Corsair Vengeance from a good friend, so I'll have a total of 8GB. :) Thank you

  1. Best answer
    That build should work fantastically together, nice job. I only have a couple of suggestions:

    -The 8350 is a great CPU, but the 8320 can EASILY clock up to 8350 performance and cost a good amount less ($145 right now on newegg, you could probably get that and the HDD for ~200 flat).
    -Your CPU/mobo combo can natively run 1866 ram, so if you can find it at the same price (which you often can), get that for a bit of a boost.
  2. Here's a build that I think would be really good: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/kirilmatt/saved/2boa
    It has a better GPU and it will also be cheaper. I saw you didn't include an OS so remove that and replace the RAM with 4Gb(unless you want 12Gb total!). Hope this helps and let me know what you think!
  3. Nice suggestions, but overclocking sounds...... difficult, especially for a newbie like me ;-;
