  1. Hmmm, it's a great build.

    I believe RAM frequency actually matters on AMD systems, so that's a good get.

    You might wanna consider a 1TB HDD and a 128gb SSD combo instead?

    The PSU is overkill. You'll only need about 750w for 2-way Crossfire with the 7950.
    If you won't be Crossfire-ing, 550w would be enough.

    Get the 212 EVO or NH-D14 instead.
  2. I Was Thinking About Doing A Intel Job but I Was Going too Save Some of the money and just do a beast of Hardware Installation's On it and mabye buying a SSD on it.

    Thanks for the Suggestion on the 212 EVO and SSD is a must what brand should i Grab I Get Nervous working with PSU'S my mate fried His putting a cpu in it i told him too get a new one but he diddn't listen so yeah i get just little bit edgy around them xD
  4. For your ram, 2400 mhz won't do anything, it will have a high latency and might not help you, but actually hurt you. The most I would go with, is 2133, but only for an apu. Anything else, you can go with 1600 mhz, or 1866.

    Every else looks okay, although I'm not sure about the new piledriver. Doesn't seem like a big improvement on the Bulldozer, but if I were you, I would stick to the traditional route and go with an i5-3570k. or non k.
  5. The FX-8350 is a great CPU, it matches Intel's i5 processors except on single-threaded applications.

    Either way, it's a good line considering it came from BD.
    You get a fairly decent gaming CPU that's 4.0Ghz stock, and has more cores.

    Do Games Use Multi Threading? I herd On Youtube Just wanna here that Confirmed From Higher Up's Like You Guys i Know Test Engines do.I know Most Progames Today Only Take up 2 To 3 Cores if pushed?

    I would pick between Vertex 4 and Samsung 830/840; whichever you find cheaper when you buy.
    According to jrgong, the Vertex 4 is on sale so you go get that. :)

    lchrisk may have a point on his post. The RAM you chose has a CAS latency of 10, so get either of this instead.

    Most games are single-threaded/core, only some can make use of multi-cores in games like BF3 multiplayer.

    Though judging from his build, I assumed he was doing stuff more than gaming.

    the Vertex 4 That Hardrive is so Cheap In Australia(Where I am From) I Get my parts from PC CASE GEAR and MWAVE so there clearance sales are awsome! Thank's Guys For The help Know Any Good Water/Liquid Cooling Systems GPU's Might be a bit oversized and I could turn the Frio Clock into a spare part and cool down the Cpu a bit?,

    I assumed he was doing stuff more than gaming its ok i do Gaming and also work on my modding skills and Graphic Engine Test Trying Make AMD Look Impressive Again xD last time i used Engine was on a Power Color Card it Didn't Like MW2 or BattleFront2 XD

    If you're going watercooling, don't bother with the pre-built ones like the Corsair Hxx series; high-end air coolers like the NH-D14 and Silver arrow pretty much matches it up on cooling temps. Get the custom water loops.
