You have no PSU listed.

The CPU cooler isn't great and isn't really better than stock. Get a coolermaster hyper 212 evo ir leave it stock.

Get a 120gb SSd or no SSD. 64gb really is too small.

On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the highest, I'd say a 7.5.

1. As tiny voices said, no PSU listed.
2. SSD is rather small unless you plan on running *nix variant operating systems.
3. The R9 280X is close to a GTX 770 in terms of performance and can be found for $80 less if you're tight on cash. Could use that $80 for something else.
4. Get the non-LE version of that motherboard.

@Alpha-Black: how so? You added in a PSU and changed the CPU. That's about the only note-worthy change.

Motherboard is pretty cheap but the rest of this is great. Would definitely get low-profile RAM though.

Agreed. You definitely did not take this to a 10 from a 4 by adding a PSU and CPU and using a cheaper motherboard.

Well, the motherboard you changed to is WORSE.

You can't say that you improved the computer a ton by adding a PSU. I'm sure OP knew it was not in there.

Looks good to me.
Change the PSU to a 650w unit NOT from the CX line of Corsair. Have a look at XFX. They have VERY good units for low prices.

Yes 650w will be plenty when overclocking the CPU and GPU with your computer.

The CPU is not a huge step up from the FX-6300 in terms of gaming. And I wouldn't say more reliable. The SSD is still 64GB and I recommend a minimum of 120GB. Seagate Barracuda is not more reliable than a WD Black. Cheaper, yes. More reliable, no. The motherboard is a tad weaker.

And you removed the cooler so no overclocking. And the FX-8350 is rather hot at stock. I would have the cooler for the FX-8350 regardless of OC.
