    get an i5 2500k, only a little cheaper and you can oc a lot, especially if you get a hyper 212 evo
    you only need 8 gb of ram, so drop one of the ram kits.
    also, the 8400 gs is really bad for gaming, my friend had one and couldn't even run sc2 on low at playable framerate, so getting a 560 ti or 460 would be a good upgrade from that.
    also, a budget would be helpful.
  2. I'd recommend a new power supply. Minimum of 550W, especially if you upgrade that GPU.
