You did pretty good. Especially being able to go with the HD 7850. More than enough for 720p. But if possible, check on the FX-6300 rather than the FX-6100. The older Bulldozer was inferior to the newer Vishera line. But if funds don't allow, you should still be fine. What is the make.model of your PSU?

i looked at the 6300 but it was about 50$ more i think and i stepped up to the 6100 from a athlon x4 750 black edition

The 4 core Athlon X4 750K is about in the same category as the 6 core FX-6100 when it comes to gaming. Actually, the Athlon X4 750K is 1 tier above the FX-6100 according to Tom's gaming CPU hierarchy chart: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-o...
(with a discrete card)

But in reality, both will be about the same for gaming with a discrete card. The six core may help in future games as they become better at multi threading and some other apps that can use more than 4 threads.

I can't help much with that keyboard; never used one. But Rosewill is Newegg's in-house brand and seem to be pretty good quality if their PSU's and cases are any example.

ya thats the reason why i upgraded from the athlon x4 750k was i know for a fact in the future games will be able to take advantage of all 6 cores i believe batllefield 3 i think uses more then 4 in multiplayer but im not sure.
