Gamer PC - Help!

Hi all! This is my first post here :D
So, I've built up a gamer pc, what I think will be future-proof for at least 3 years. So, please check if everything matches.

Processor: AMD Athlon II X4 750K, 3400MHz, 4MB, socket FM2, Black Edition
RAM: Kingston 4GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM HyperX Blu
Motherboard: MSI FM2-A75MA-E35, socket FM2
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB, 7200rpm, 16MB, SATA3
Video Card: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 7850, 2048MB, GDDR5, 256bit, HDMI, PCI-E, DVI
Source: Cooler Master GX Bronze, 450W
Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 Black

This is what I've built up... Sorry for my english :)

  1. The CPU is weak. Get a phenom II x4 965.

    Your motherboard is the wrong socket. You need an AM3 motherboard.

    Never use a cooler master PSU. They are crap. Get one from Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic.
  2. What is your budget for this system?

  3. First of all, thanks for replys. I dunnow how, but in our webshop in Europe, the same parts you wrote have a double price. For an example:
    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 975 3.6GHz Quad-Core Processor ($82.18 @ SuperBiiz) -------> This part is 148 USD at us. I've converted in several currency converter sites.

    Also, I have a will: the video card MUST be 2GB. I dunnow why, but it MUST be. So, I've calculated the price for Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7850, 2048MB, GDDR5, 256 bit, HDMI, DVI, PCI-E --------> 324.53 USD. Weeeeeell...

    Here comes my question: are the "SuperBiiz, Outlet PC, Amazon, Newegg" delivering to Europe too?

    So the overall for your build, which is 534.07 in 'Merica is 936.14 USD at us (with 2GB Video Card). I'm pretty confused...
  4. A 2gb 7850 won't be any different from a 1gb 7850 if you have only 1 monitor. There will be absolutely no difference. Its a waste.
  5. Could you tell me an other Case/Power Supply, because here I can't buy none of them?!
