Hi, people. I just made an upgrade for my pc. I got the AMD FX-8150 Black edition.
--------------------------------------------------
System Specs.
600w Power Supply.
AS Rock N68 V63 FX (I KNOW ITS CRAP).
4gb Ram DDR3.
Nvidia GeForce 8600 GS.
--------------------------------------------------
My Budget is $200 appx.
I want it to run games like as best as it couyld get with this build and budget.
My resolution is 1920 X 1200. I could play with less :p 

Now that i have the AMD CPU is it better for the gpu to be AMD or not?

I have stock cooling. (CPU Fan and 2 other 120mm fans). Is it enough?

Thank you very much, greeting from Costa Rica.

pau model is important as psu quality varies heavily from brand to brand. quality even varies among one manufacturer's different models. for example, if you have a corsair tx 650 v2, you'd be able to run an fx8150 and a radeon hd 6870 without a hitch. but if you have a cooler master extreme power plus psu, you might run into issues.
edit: generic, bundled-with-case psus would be risky for running an fx 8150 as it is a quite power hungry cpu. it's power consumption gets higher when you overclock it.

I think i might get a better PSU. What are your recomendations? 900w??

900w would be overkill.
if you don't oc or don't use a power hungry card, a corsair tx 650 v2 650w psu should be good. it depends on your current psu model though. if it is good enough, why spend on another, yes?
