If you can extend your budget upto 80$ more then get this video card instead
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And if you can't still buy this card and buy a fx 6300 CPU instead. It will save your 90$ as its about 110$ in newegg. Its cheaper 90$ and will do the job. If you can extended your budget 8350 is awesome, but if you can't buy fx 6300 it will do the job.

Hope that helped.

And yeah rest everything looks good.

Looks good for what's there, How about OS and CPU Cooler (212 EVO would be good $30)

I agree. Either save money and go for the fx6300, or pop a little more for a better graphics card. The 8350 would be going to waste almost with the 7850.

I'm running windows 7 64bit I'll add it in a bit. The fx8350 is already here it took almost two weeks with newegg being very slow I have no idea how long it would take to return it and I got it as a gift. I did want to go with a stronger graphics card but in gone middle of my build process I had some unforeseen bills and the 3 graphics cards I wanted where sold out. So it was basically between this and GeForce GTX 650 Ti

I still recommend you the r9 270x. Its cheap, in stock, and outperfoms all of the cards in this debate.

It looks like everything is at least good and the only major upgrade would be to the graphics card. (or go dual) although I'm not sure how that would work out.

I cannot access tigerdirect through my country. But the MSI gaming 2G on newegg is 200$ and one of the best r9 270x

HD 7870 GHz edition or R9 270x? No matter. They are the same gpu/mem/shaders.

CrossfireX or crossfire means you can use two Graphics card work together. You get slightly more fps in r9 270x if you compare it with 7870 and also its newer so you can crossfire it with the newer cards like r9 290x ,280, 280x etc.
(I don't mean it to do now) but you can do it later when you have more money to spend. r9 270x will do the job alone. new games like BF4, BF3, Crysis 3,Bioshock,will be totally playable at 1080p with good fps at medium-Very high settings.If you have more money, then go with the 8350 so it will not bottleneck in future if you add more cards.

Hope that helps.
