Any specific reason why you are using an APU and a workstation class video card? I don't see what you are trying to build here. For a gaming rig rig you need to drop the APU and get a gaming class video card(for gaming the FirePro card isn't going to do very well). For a workstation you just need to drop the APU for a better similarly priced CPU, but its still not going to game very well.

You have a work station graphics card and an apu with a discrete gpu. i suggest this build:
