Hello all I am building my first gaming pc this month and after debating over parts with the helpful people here on the forum, I have come up with what I believe to be my final build. It will be used mainly for gaming/video editing on World of Warcraft. If you see any room for improvements please let me know trying to keep budget around 1100.00 below I will list links to parts
AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Editiion 3.4 Ghz, GeForce 660 gpu , 16gb memory, 650watt psu
You can delete the Arctic Cooling heatsink from your list. The heatsink that comes in the box with the processor is much better than the one you have listed, I also doubt the Arctic Cooling heatsink would be good enought to cool a 125W processor.
The i5 crushes any AMD CPU out right now. Even at stock speeds you would have to seriously OC the 8350 to get close to the i5 (for gaming any way). AMD's extra cores do help with multithread applications that can utilize more than 2 or 4 cores. And I accidently add the CD\DVD burner and OS. Edited the list with that out. If you live near a Microcenter, you can get the 3570k for $169.99 and save $40 on a motherboard.
