Hi guys,

This is my first home build. I'm living in Brasil, so changing to the intel i5's is not an option due to price.
Would like to know if everything is ok with this build, and any suggestions would be welcome.

AMD FX 4100 (6100 is also an option)
Asus M5A78L-M LX mobo
Kingston 2x4gb DDDR3 1333mhz
Seagate barracuda 500gb 7200rpm SATA
nVidia Gefore GTX 550 TI (P3-1557-KR
Mymax Cratus MPSU/80P600W-STD
LG E2241V 21.5" LED Full HD monitor

I'm going to be using for gaming (L4D2, Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Guild Wars 1&2, etc) and movies, maybe some photo editing.

Thanks guys :D

Oh and don't buy a SSD, is too expensive and u have to replace it twice a year.

I think u should go for a FX-6100 and change the motherboard for one a little bit more complete, with at least 4 x DIMM, so about max memory would be 16 or 32GB, so then u can buy a new set of Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4x4GB) PC3-15000 (1866Mhz) for optimal gaming.
