you need a 990fx chipset mobo to use fx processors
if it doesnt cost much more, get the fx 6100 (i like intel but for this budget, get amd)
a msi twin frozer 3 7850 will run you better.(ex. high to ultra on bf3) any other brand you like is also good. go with non reference
get a seagate 1tb sata 6gb/s drive. it has more performance for the buck

i already have the mother board and it supports all fx series and i was looking at the hdd so i will get that and the 7850 is more than 6950
