Without a few things there isn't really anyway to "rate your rig"

Purpose of the system?

Price you paid?

hate to sound like a troll but why did you go to so much trouble eg replacing fans in an antec 1200 (which are already pretty good to start with) and everything else is top notch the you go and put a fx chip in, WTF???????? if your after the best one would think you would put in an i5 or i7 k or if amd i would rather have seen you put in a phenom 2 in it!
OR are you intentionally troll fishing :pt1cable:

Well in general i love AMD because of the price of the parts, and that their MB they can take any kind of CPU other than the new APU but the only two things i hate about Intel other than the price, is when going for a i5 or i7 there are 2-3 different MB, which kind of sucks when you want upgrade. I don't know, i like the freedom AMD gives with the price. CPU that i got should be great for gaming, i just need good GPU if i am not mistaken but I am no pro in building a unit, i am very self learned, so i don't know all the ins and outs.

For that much money, I would've definitely gone with an i5-2500k or i7-2600k instead. I like AMD as much as anyone, but they really blew it with their FX processors. Intel is actually a far better value for the money in this go-around, particularly with the i5-2500k; I mean, it isn't even close.

Don't take that the wrong way, though - it's not like you're going to be unhappy with the FX-6200. The 6-core and 8-core Zambezi CPUs are still very good processors. Just not as good as what Intel has out there.

there motherboards may be able to take various cpu's but end of the day there are trade offs as the northbridge is on the cpu and if the motherboard doesnt support the specs the cpu is forced to downgrade for example the hypertransport speedis a prime example. price performance intel owns them for games too that has been proven plenty with i3's beating out the top dog fx chips. end of the day its your money you can do as you want just seems strange the rest of your build i cant fault including your mobo apart from the fact its not an intel chipset (props to you for that) but if you want the best there is only 1 option and the price performance arguement isnt in amds favour either. apart from that good job. btw the way your gpu is good its probably that cpu holding it back lol

It's a great system. I'll give it an eight out of ten (8/10), as I'd have recommended HD 7800-series and an Intel CPU, however I'm sure you'll be very happy with what you got.
