Looking to get a new computer, will an AMD FX 4100 Hold back my HD7850?

I'm building a new entry level PC, here are the specs

AMD FX 4100 @3.30Ghz quad core
ASRock 970-EXTREME3 Motherboard
Kingston KVR1333D3N9/8G 8GB (1x8GB) 1333Mhz DDR3
Western Digital WD Green 500GB
Thermaltake Versa II Mid Tower w/ 500w psu
MSI Radeon HD7850

thanks in advance

  1. Processor and motherboard are not compatible. You will experience bottleneck with the green hdd. What's your budget?

    you cannot put an AMD processor into an Intel-based motherboard
  3. right, that was an accident. what 500gb HDD would you reccommend?

    budget is roughly 700
