    Well, that's definitely a nice start for a gaming rig. I would however, consider a more powerful PSU. The X4 965 as well as the HD7850 drain quite a lot of power and if you take the efficiency, wear of capacitors and the facts that you might want to add some extra components to it I would go for a 500W PSU. Furthermore, I would go for a little bit more expensive motherboard - it's a real budget motherboard you've chosen.
