FX 8350 Build - Thoughts?

Hey, I'm thinking about building a 8350 system (i'm aware intel is faster, but I plan on tossing it to 5ghz+). So far I've slapped together some stuff I'm looking at, and I'm after suggestions/opinions. Feel free to link other parts :D The more the merrier.

CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113284

HDD - I already have either a 500gb, or a 2TB raid 0 setup i'll be transfering over.

GPU - I already have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133469 which i'll be throwing in.

Any thoughts or suggestions welcome. My main worry is that 750W PSU won't be enough to add another 680 in the future, since I'll be overclocking the CPU massively and AMD is a little more power hungry. Thanks again.

  1. For gaming go with a i5-3570k you'll be better served, a waste coupling the 680 gtx with that cpu.

    i5-3570k+noctua d14+z77 extreme 6 asrock and you'll get more performance.
  2. an FX-8350 is NOT a waste for gaming at 5GHz. The price to performance ratio is insane at those frequencies. An eight-core CPU running at 5GHz for $220, that's a bargain. If the build is used ONLY for gaming, however, i would say they are even.

    I would get this instead for the PSU...

    Heck of a PSU for the price.
