Good gaming rig?

So i have been researching for a month now on all parts for my rig, and this is what i have come up with.
AMD FX 4130 (intel fanboys i do now give 2 [removed] about a new intel processor that gives 1 more fps than the one i want, amd is much cheaper with barely any performance drops)
Cooler master hyper 212 evo
MSI 760GMA-P34
Gskill ares ddr3 1600 mhz 2x8gb ram
MSI GTX750 oc 1gb ddr5 twinfrozr
Cooler master force 500 black
corsair vs450w
Hitachi HDS721616PLA380 ATA Device HDD
WDC WD10EZEX-60ZF5A0 ATA Device HDD

Is this good/compatible?

    It might be Intel, but it's better than AMD, with the 22 nm architecture.

    Parts in your system should be compatible. Only concern from me is that the motherboard might need a bios update, but I'm not 100% sure on that. Someone will have to check that for me maybe.

    why would i need a bios update?
  6. Older chipset might need a bios update to be compatible with newer cpus. I'm not really sure if you will or not, check pcpartpicker and see if you will or not.
