Yes it will work. I currently run an fx 8350 and sapphire 7950. That compatibility really depends on the motherboard. If you can fit the fx 8320 and 7950 into your motherboard and your power supply can support them, then you are good to go. This means you need an am3+ motherboard with pci-e 2.0 and a power supply with two 6 pin connectors that runs a minimum of 450 watts.

Are you enjoying the 8350? Is it fast? Reason i got 8320 is well because of more money to invest in a gpu and better fan coolermaster hyper 212 evo. Are the 8359 and 8320 par on performance except clock speds?

I do enjoy it. I got it up to 4.4 ghz without touching voltages. You might be able to do the same with your 8320. Yeah, it money is tight you are probably right to save for a better gfx card. The 8320 is the same chip as 8350, but they are binned as the 8350 being a higher quality chip. All this really means is that they are more confident that an 8350 can reach a higher clockrate than the 8320. I've heard of people overclocking the 8320 to the same overclock that the 8350 can reach. It really depends on the luck of the draw.

Im not of a much o'cer and i wont definitely touch the voltage ill try to get it up to 4.0 thats all just to get it to the 8350 par. Hate to seee all these intel fanboys hate especially rEcomending the i5 to a gamer when gaming is 75% on gpu hmmm makes me wonder how many idiots intel bought out what kind of cooler are you using!

Also is the saphire 7950 good on cooling? Is it loud? And my mobo is http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0053YM70Y/ref=oh_deta... and my main os and storage drive is ocz vertex 4 ssd with a cooler master haf 912 with coolermaster 600w psu good build?

I have the ZALMAN CNPS7X LED 92mm heatsink. I like it a lot. It's very good on cooling and quiet. I'm at 4.4 ghz and it doesn't go over 55 degrees C. The 7950 I have is also super quiet. I was surprised at the noise difference between my old 6950 and my new 7950.

I think it's a good build. If you aren't going to crossfire/sli, then that motherboard is fine. If you are, then get a 990fx chipset.
