Hi, so I'm kind of new to PC gaming, however I do know what is good and bad so no trolling :) 

What do you think of this gaming rig? (No Intel fanboy comments)

Gigabyte M68 Motherboard Technology

AMD Bulldozer FX 8120 3.1ghz 8 Core 8mb Cache

1TB Sata Hard Drive

8gb DDR3 1333 Memory

Vantage Rampage Red Gaming Case

24x Dual Layer Sata DVD Writer

ATI Radeon 7770 1gb GDDR5 with HDMI

Windows 8 64bit With Disc and License

750w PSU

Also getting this monitor:

Acer G226HQLBBD 21.5 inch Full HD LED Monitor - Black

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-G226HQLBBD-21-5-inch-Monit...

And this for my ATI 7770 - Monitor linkup (and PS3 - kind of irrelevant)

What do you think?


Budget : 540 GBP (pounds)

No Intel please :D  (I know they're better)...

P.S. If I had the choice of going 16GB - AMD FX 6100, would this be better? ( I think 8GB RAM is enough)

I would go with a different motherboard. I'm not really sure on AMD motherboards, but I'm sure you'll be alright with an ASRock Extreme4 990FX.

I would personally if you want to go with AMD, go with the new Piledriver architecture. The FX4300 or the FX6300 should do.
