  1. It isn't too bad, but you could optimize it. There's something better to be done with that amout of money.
    Other than that, I definitively recommend you an i5 rather than an i7 if it is for gaming.
  2. Thanks for the answer. Optimize it how?

    If you can add 30 more dollars, I recommend you to get the FX-8350 instead.
