I would like some help on my new computer build... I feel kind of stupid because I already bought some parts and should of made this question before I did :pfff: 

So far These are the parts I have Bought

Power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Video card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I have DVD drive

And these are the next parts I am thinking of buying

Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Cpu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
(could I get something better for the money on the cpu?) I dont need Integrated graphics and the 3.6 GHz clock speed seems to high will it run hot?

Heatsink: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I have 500 GB hard drive and 750 GB hard drive

I will Opt In for a SDD but later on

is there any parts here that could be possibly cheaper or a bit more expensive for the performance?

for cpu i recommend fx 6300 or fx 4300.
For cpu cooler go for CM 212 EVO
For ram you need 1600 MHz kind.

-the cx series are pretty crap. just saying
-the thermaltake is also pretty crap
-there are better video cards in that price range than the gtx 650

now for the components that you are going to buy

-fast ram is useless. go look around for some crucial ballistix sport 8gb 1600mhz.
-fx sucks compared to intel. the 4100 needs 3x the power of a i3 3220 to achieve the same gaming performance. since you have already bought a amd board, id suggest getting the fx 6300 as piledriver performs slightly better
-for the CPU cooler, get the 212 evo

But will the CPU run with my power supply I already choose a 430 watt power supply will it give me issues with my video card? will I have power shortage issues?

the video card and all will run, but the cx series should not have been your first choice.

the 212 evo performs a tad under but is 20 bucks cheaper

it will fit and run but fast ram is not worth the investment. doesnt perform a crap better

lol this might sound funny but the ram costs 42 dollars and the g.skill sniper costs 50 I am mainly going for the
G.skill becouse i like how it looks and by the way looks like i going for a fx 4300 :)

i found ram for 30 bucks a couple weeks ago. the cheapest set i can find now that is actually good is 35. your point?

looks are irrelevant when the heatsink covers the whole thing

the 8150 was probably the biggest mistake you can make. the 6300 would have been faster and use less power. and is cheaper
