any changes are welcome, thanks in advance guys, and another question is that further down the road when i want to increase my GPU power, should computer have 2 pcie 2.0 in order to crossfire? and is there a guide on how to crossfire on tomsharware? thanks!

go for a better graphics card than that.. try a ATI HD 7950, for that build the graphics you chose is too low

You do not need liquid cooling for a NON-K CPU.
You do not need an 80+ GOLD Certified PSU.

With the money you save, upgrade the GPU. If you like nVidia, take a look at a 760/770 or if you prefer AMD, take a look at a 7950. They overclock decently.

would a CM V4 gts suffice? in my country, the Philippines it's pretty hot and I don't always leave the aircon running so i wanna keep my cpu cool, would a bronze 80+ cpu be enough? i prefer amd over nvidia, had terrible experience with nvdia cards

I recommend a Hyper 212 EVO for the CPU Cooler. Great Price/Performance Ratio. A Bronze Cert PSU will be fine, make sure it's around the 750-850W mark to allow for any future upgrades. As for GPU, the 7950 sounds like a good card, mate.

if i want to overclock in the future what quad core cpu would be better?
would this be a good psu this

and would changing the gpu to this one be ok?
the 7950 at my country is wayy overprice, it at around $300, while the 7850 OC ed, is around $200, and the 7870 is around $250,

would the Hyper 212 evo support some low overclocking? thanks!

A 212 EVO is good for modest overclocking.
