Looks pretty good to me besides the PSU people were saying

That GPU is a cool running one... it is the 290 that is hot

Could find higher speed RAM for the money

I would say try to add an SSD. Awesome pieces of tech.

And you really need to think about your psu (power box to you)... never heard of thermaltake (new to all this anyway) add another 10 more $ and you may be able to get a seasonic or a corsair make, and beware, those new AMD GPUs apparently run quite hot. So a not so good make of PSU my crap on your (IMO) lovely looking PC.

I agree. Get an SSD. It will make your whole computer a lot more snappy. That is what I used when I built mine. I will never go back to just having a hard drive.

I use the SSD for the OS and some games, I still have a hard drive for movies and music/files.
Peace and love!

4 core intel Processors will be good for future? New consoles have 8 core. I not want to be behind.

I see many people say you can buy parts with 400 to 500 US dollars that will make a PC far better then playstation. What would be needed to match that?
I do not want to upgrade after I get a PC.

The problem with the new console CPUs is that while they are 8 cores, they are also pretty low end. They're basically tablet CPUs. A new i5 walks all over them.

Keep the 8350. Games are already starting harness 8 cores.
