Logitech G510 is a G110 without a screen, not worth the extra money I reccomend a mechanical keyboard anyway ( Corsair K90 is great ) other then that it should work fine.

Get an i5 and Radeon 7770. The FX series is terrible when it comes to gaming.

Eep. the i3 3220 is the same price and 2 tiers up on the 8150... would still allow for a 7850 for a nice balanced rig.
