LOL.. you are using an intel chipset Motherboard with a AMd processor .. Well that is impossible

*You need to get an AM3+ socket Motherboard : ASRock 970 EXTREME4 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

*No need for such an expensive HDD, instead get this : Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

*Switch the Ram from (1x8GB) to (2x4GB) it will give you better performance : G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...(Desktop%20Memory)-_-G.SKILL-_-20231519&cm_sp=&AID=10440897&PID=3938566&SID=)

*Change the PSU brand , do not buy Rosewill, try to get a decent PSU from Corsair, Antec etc.. Go with this one.. its from corasir and its even cheaper than Rosewill : Corsair CX600 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

*Powercolor is good but i would recommend you to go with this as this is for a cheaper price : MSI Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

@OP:
What is your budget?
Do you really need a wifi adapter?
Where are you buying from? Are you fine buying from multiple retailers?

@GamerDrone: Even though the psu is Corsair, the CX series are crap because it uses low quality capacitors.

LOL.

Please try researching again. Then post again here :) .
Know what CPU is compatible with what Motherboard.
What PSU would suffice.
How many VGA.
How many HDD/SDD

I would prefer Windows 7 64 bit.. but it is expensive.. So go with Windows 8.1 64 bit
