Oh I saw you were upgrading from old laptop so I didn't know you had those, do you need the SSD? This build will max out everything. If you don't need the SSD just remove it.

Yeah got SSD. No need for i7 or fx-8350 even with background downloading and some http, mysql server?

How about some asus mobo? Wouldn't be better? (no experience with asrock)

Is 7970 matrix from asus worth extra $?

Asus is supposed to be better for overclocking, I'll add if you want. Not sure about the Asus Matrix. I'll add i7 if you want.
