Six cores won't help you in gaming. Not many games even utilizes four cores, if any :p  My suggestions is to switch to either a Phenom II x4 955 and overclock it OR switch to Intel :) 

You can grab either i3-2100/i5 2400 along with a H series motherboard if you're on a budget. If you can afford to spend a little bit more, you won't regret buying an i5-2500k and a p67/z68 motherboard. Microcenter sells for cheap compare newegg and amazon if you have access to the store.

The graphic card youve chosen is deactivated and I would at least get the Radeon HD 6770 minimum for gaming.

As for power supply, you should look at newegg instead and find from some reliable brand such as antec, corsair, xfx, etc. I would say Seasonic but they're pricey.

Find your case on newegg! They have a good selection and you have your own preferences too xD sorry I would make a list of components but not much time on my hand atm.

Alright thank you :)  I know six cores wont be too much of a help, but often I'm downloading videos and playing youtube at the same time. I also do some video editing so that's why I chose the six cores. I already have the graphics card so yea... I don't do too much heavy gaming either. Mostly vindictus and later GW2. Thanks for the help though :)
