Honestly. No.

If you are going to do an upgrade you can move to an Intel 2500k build for the same amount of money, maybe a little more. But in the long run you are going to get more out of it in the long term. If you're gaming the biggest boost you will see if a new gpu paired with a 2500k if its within budget. The performance boost will be massive. What you posted would be but I don't see the point of going with BD when it just can't match Intel.

In this case you get what you pay for. (Not trying to be rude, just a little blunt) Hope this helps.

Here to echo the same thing hellboy said, I was considering a BD build to upgrade from my old Phenom II X4 955 BE rig, but it turned out I could go i5-2500K and get a nice mATX mobo for cheaper. At my local Microcenter I was able to get an i5-2500K + a z68 mobo for ~$230 before taxes.

Also, you should consider waiting for pre-Black Friday, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday deals for the best prices on rig components

hmmm I guess i will wait for cyber monday, will suck cause I am going to be without my computer untill then. I sell my old cpu ram and mobo for 120 on saturday. So my budget is 350. Go set me up and I will be appreciated. Use one product on amazon cause I got a gift card there for 20 dollars.

Just saw and a 2500k won't be feesible for me.

Did more research and found that an i5-2500k is actually cheaper, and more future proof because I got pcie 3.0 mobo. And in gaming it performs better, so I need the gaming performance over rendering.
