Additional Comments: I'm not sure on what a "good" power supply is so i haven't added one yet. Also need a keyboard and mouse but I prefer to pick those out at a local store. Also thinking that the FX-8350 is overkill for me, might go down to a FX-6300.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Don't have a desktop and using a five year old laptop for games isn't fun
