Building my first computer need help !
Ok so I would say that I have a decent understand of computers , nothing serious. I can explain and understand what all the components do and I'm pretty sure I could fit them all together even though it would be a challenge. Basically I'm looking to build my first PC which is t entirely for gaming but it would be its main purpose . So far I've selected these components and I would just like to know if it would work/ compatible with each other and any other advice would be helpful
Motherboard : Asus sabrethooth 990fx r2.0
Processor :AMD fx8350 8core black edition
Graphics card : asus GeForce gtx 660
RAM : corsair vengeance 8 gb (2x4gb) cmz8gx3m2a1600c9
PSU : corsair builder series 600w
Optical drive i have at home, forgotten its name but its compatible
So any help would be appreciated

Okay so to answer your questions about will all your parts fit and being compatible. Use this website and add all of your components to it, It will display a message at the bottom if they're any problems/complications. Also your build seems decent enough, For gaming you want quite a powerful Graphics card but at the same time you need a decent processor. However you don't want to bottleneck so you'll want to make them equal. The Asus GeForce 660 is quite a powerful card, I have the 660Ti myself which has that extra bit of power behind it. In my personal opinion I would not suggest going with AMD processors, because In my experience of building Gaming PCs. I have found that they seem to be slow and not very responsive. However that is just my opinion. I find my intel i5 2400 @ 3.1ghz was far more efficient than the AMD A10 5800k @ 4.0ghz. Even though the speeds and stats seem higher, there is just something about intel which makes them run smoother.

Thanks very much, my friend showed me that CPU benchmark website where it compare performances so for price and performance I went for the AMD as it outperformed some of the i7 cores which cost a lot more . Additionally I was looking at the ASIs GeForce 760 which is more powerful than the 660 but also cheaper than the 660 ti, so is it worth to get the 760 or just go full out on the 660ti?? I'm building on a budget so can't really go any higher by much at the moment

I would go with the 760 because it's newer and has many advantages of the 660/Ti. If you check this link out you will see the advantages vs both cards at the bottom -http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-760-vs-GeForce-GTX-.... If your on a budget I guess AMD is the best choice because they're significantly cheaper than Intel.
