Hi guyz, Im planning to build my new gaming rig and planning to buy these components...

Mobo: ASUS Crosshair V Formula ROG
Processor: AMD FX 8150 Black edition 3.60 GHZ with Corsair h40 water cooler
GPU: Sapphire AMD Radeon 7870 OC
Memory: 8GB (2x4gb) Corsair Vengeance
PSU: FSP Epsilon 700watts
Chassis: Aerocool Strike X one Gaming case

I just want to ask if these specs are good for hardcore gaming.

PS: Im an AMD fanboy ^_^

Thank you!!!

Forget about the 8150. It's a bad gaming CPU.
Get the FX-8320 instead if you want AMD, or 3470/3570K if Intel.

That motherboard is too expensive. You're also spending too much on it instead of the GPU.

Where are you from and what's your budget? I'll help you set up a better rig.

I gotta agree. The system is unbalanced and odd. Weak CPU + water cooled and 700W PSU. ??

@excella1221 yes I know that fx 8150 has bad reviews, and 8350 is way better, but its not yet available yet here in our country, Philippines. is there way for me to order that cpu and to ship it here? I don't think newegg or amazon is shipping products here In the Philippines.

by the way I changed plan for my mobo and gpu, I will get the ASUS TUF Sabertooth 990fx r2.0 which is more affordable and for the gpu I will just get the Sapphire HD7950 Boost edition. I will not anymore get a water cooling hardware as I do not have plans for overclocking anything.

Thanks.
