8.5/10.

The motherboard is a bit low end for the build as a whole and the PSU could be slightly better quality. the case is also not the best for the money.

No major complaints though, Very solid build you have there.

It is about the same. There is no problem with either. It was just an observation. They will both work perfectly fine. I would try to get a 990 chipset board just in case you ever plan to overclock the CPU.

Well, its better than what I have. Your graphics is good. As said above, the motherboard isnt the best thing you could buy, but it will work like any other motherboard.

You might want to try to find a SSD as well, they are pretty quick. There are better power supplies, but the one you chose will suffice.

That particular motherboard isn't awesome because it is known to have problems. But that chipset it what you are looking for.

For a very good quality case, look at Antec, Corsair, Coolermaster, NZXT, Fractal Design, Bitfenix.
