don't get that cpu, look at the 4300 or 6300. You don't need a psu that strong, 500w would be fine. You will only need 8gb ram. Look at 7750 or 7770 as well.

I give it 5/10.

Too much slow speed ram. (should be 8gb 1600mhz)

Should have gotten an fx-6300 (the 6100 was a decent failure and isn't very good)

Way too much PSU

Weak GPU. At 1080p with modern games you are looking at low/med settings.

well atleast i got a 5/10 this is my first build so have to learn i guess. I was on a very tight budget and the ram was on sale and compared to what i had ( 6GB DDR2 800MHz) its a major jump for me. The CPU i thought was a good one but... it was not overly expensive. The PSU when i looked at all the prices where i was it was the most cost efficient even though i know it was an overkill. The GPU i will not be running 1080p on it and play more MMORPG's than anything..(Rift,Aion,Shaiya,maybe soon Tera)

Thank you for the grade though it is how we learn and i value all comments this site is where i have learned what little i know,So once again Thank You

Hmmmm it is always good to take opinions before you buy your system.
I think you should get 1600Mhz RAM sticks. That wud do .
