I am planning on building a computer this year, this is what I would get:

Motherboard:ASRock 970 Extreme3

CPU: AMD FX-8150

RAM: Kingston HyperX Grey 8GB

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB

Graphics card: Asus Radeon HD 7770 2GB

Power supply: Corsair Builder 430W

Operating system: Windows 8.1

Any suggestions and comments of incompatability's would be greatly appreciated. I want this computer to be a decent gaming computer (runs WOW, LOL, Minecraft) around about 715$ excluding the case. I am only 14 years old, so if you comment back please do not use all the techy computer language, i am a BIG NOOB when it comes to that.

Thanks!

that processor is bulldozer, and the newer ones (8320/50) are piledriver and have much better performance...Any motherboard with the 970 or higher chipset will be fine, Asrock and Asus are my fav brands. also save up some money and get a HD 7800 series card or a r9 270x, or else you don't really need an fx 8 core, a fx 6300 would match a lower level 7000 series card. Unless you do more than just gaming? 3-d modeling? rendering? streaming?

I might do streaming, and maybe do some Cinema 4d and things, but thank you so much for the advice , greatly appreciated. :)

8 core processor is not a bad idea if you plan on streaming and using programs like cinema. The stronger graphics card will really only be felt in gaming, make sure you get a card with a lot of dedicated RAM (2GB is the minimum with newer games, if you want it to run well) and is gddr5 (NOT gddr3), and that RAM is good and fast so that's good too
