Well your build fits great !

I would not compromise about the GPU - take the HD 7950 witch is about the same prise and MUCH better (If you need specifications just ask):

And for boot speed + programing/renderin get an SSD if needed.

Enjoy ;)

the CPU is slightly weak but still good for gaming, and the GPU is about 2 tier above your HD 7870 so it should give much better gaming results.

slightly weak? because i also dont want a weak CPU and Asus Radeon HD 7970 cost $500 in my country D: with $300 i can get a 7950. Why Fractal Design Core 3000? is it better than Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case?

Timmy in my country the 7950 is about 350$ as well, it does worth the money.. In a gaming rig that is the 1st thing that matters, you can buy great rig but without a great GPU its nothing .

So spare a little money and buy the 6300 with 6core and not the 8530 and put it ON THE GPU.

where are you from?you should've listed your country on your OP. also find other HD 7970's that are around 300$ zone. if there aren't any then go with 7950, with a good cooler, so that if you need more performance you just have to OC the card for a nice boost.
