New Build and I need Feedback

Hello, I am building a new gaming rig and need some feedback on how good you guys think it is and make any suggestions you can. I prefer to get everything from because it keeps it simple for me. I did'nt know how to make hyperlinks for these opjects but if you goto and type any of the names in you will find them quickly. I chose the AMD fx 6100 over the Intel i3-2105 because of benchmarks i found here:

Here is the rest of the system:

  1. What's your budget? What will this computer be used for?
  2. my budget is 690$ CAN and is used for gaming

    Check that before picking the 6100. I would (maybe incorrectly) extrapolate that the 6100 is less effective at gaming making the Intel chip a much better deal at whatever your price point is.
  4. Did you see the link in my original post? the chart shows that it is better than core i3-2015
  5. The two cards are neck-to-neck, but i think the GTX 650 just takes it, choose which one you prefer :)
  6. Saw the chart and that one has nothing to do with games (just raw compute which doesn't necesarity translate to games). The link to the Far Cry article is more appropriate. The highest end Vishera is just slightly worse than a very low end Sandy dual core. Here's the relevant quote:
    "The good news for folks with Piledriver-based processors is that the FX-8350 is nearly as quick as Intel's Core i3-2100 (never mind the fact that the Core i3 costs $90 less)."
  7. Oka so I pretty much scrapped the old build and have already purchased this build:
