That's a decent build, I'd recommend swapping the 4350 with a 6300 though, it's good enough to play new games coming out at high-very high settings at 1080p
Modified it a little

The 6300 is only about $10 more and you get 2 more physical cores which would come handy in the future

Is the 6300 that much better even If the 4350 is at 4.2ghz
Nov 9, 2013, 5:26 PM
In threaded applications its better due to its additional cores, in older games where less threads are used the 4350 is better

Oh ok so that computer should perform pretty well? As I do plan to upgrade later
Nov 9, 2013, 5:28 PM
Yep it'll do pretty well

Do I need any adapters like 4 pin to moles for example?
Nov 9, 2013, 6:05 PM
For the GPU? the card should come with some though your PSU should have the right connectors already
