800$-900$
and i dont know about overclocking, its just that my friends recommend me to not overclock because it produce more heat and here in the philippines the temperature is hot.

no need for optical drive and do i really need 2 internal hard drives?

HDD: Use the smaller hard drive (250 GB) for your operating system & programs, and the bigger hard drive for files and games. Your system will thank you. One should always use one for the operating system (less thinking for the computer, less things to go through when it starts, and the bigger one should be for gaming, since they take up more room).
CPU Cooler: That CPU cooler should keep your system nice and cool.
CPU: Kept the same
Motherboard: That will be a better motherboard, supports USB 3.0, and Crossfire/SLI for future expansion.
Memory: 1866 MHz is a faster RAM speed then 1600 MHz
Video Card: Same 7950 HD card different brand (more reliable) and cheaper
Case: I saw you liked green so i think this case will suit you nice, it even displays the temperature on the front of your PC.
Power-supply: I went with a better power supply for future upgrades.

Hope this helps. Remember to ask any more questions and pick your best answer so others may learn from it. Thanks.

This will hold its own with my 2,000 dollar pc. Mine is meant more for over clocking. But i will lay it out so you get an idea of what you are getting for a cheaper price:

CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($89.99 @ NCIX US)

Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($67.50 @ Newegg)
Storage: Seagate Momentus Thin 250GB 2.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($50.00 @ Logic Supply)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.98 @ Outlet PC)
Video Card: PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card ($179.99 @ Newegg)

Power Supply: Corsair CX 750W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: LG GH24NS95 DVD/CD Writer ($14.98 @ Outlet PC)

its just that, it feels a bit weaker.
i liked the fx 8350 and the 7950 video card with 990fx mobo though. :(

It will be a bit stronger for gaming actually. The 6-core will actually be better for gaming since it has a similar stock GHz as the 8-core did, that graphics card will actually out perform the radeon you originally picked out, and probably will for the next couple of years, right now the difference between radeon and GTX is night and day. Most games never use more then 4 cores and 8 gb of ram. The power supply is why it feels weaker, but tell you what my computer as much stuff as I have crammed in there i only need a 400 watt power supply (that's overkill) on my system. Your computer doesn't eat wattage until you start to SLI or Crossfire. Hope this helps. Thanks.

if you have enough head room, get a fx-8350 instead, but only if you have the money, it won't make much of a difference but it will help on every day use.

Man I've never seen that case before it's pretty ballin' for 70 dollar range.
October 2, 2013 5:54:38 PM

man wait to buy a video card especially from red camp because the R7 and R9 are coming out in a few day so it's no biggie. The new cards are supposed to make the old ones basically inept AMD seems notorious for cannabalising their own hardware.
