Hey man the FX series isnt that great. Look at the Phenom II CPUS such as this one.

Everything else looks decent. Do you have a budget?

hmm. it should be set to private. Ill just show all items seperate then.

Asus crosshair iv MOBO 194.99

AMD phenom x6 1090t 169.99

Thermaltake Armor a60 case 99.99

MSI twin frozr II HD 6950 259.99

OCZ fatality 750w PSU 99.99

Corsair Vengance 16gb DDR3-1600 ram 86.99

LG 22x DVD 16.99

3x Apevia 120mm Red Led fans 26.97

xigmatek CPU Cooler 28.99

total: 1085 before MIR.

you could get a cheap MOBO one for like 90 bucks, cheaper case for about 60, no CPU cooler, 8gb of ram, a decent PSU 550w would do and save around 300 bucks off this build and have a good PC and definately stay in your budget.
