to get performance out of your cpu will require a heavy oc which means you need some serious cooling to do it safley 24/7....so make sure you do the best you can in this category....you may even consider going with a 960t until the next gen bulldozer comes out(piledriver) it's a fairly inexpensive great performer that has a chance to unlock to a 6core also....any direction you go your going to need good cpu cooling....for the best i would suggest a rasa rx360 water kit...for under $200 it is the best solution thumb.gif
other than that looks pretty solid smile.gif

also better ram would be a good investment...the bulldozer chips will use 1866 or above the 960t would also take advantage of faster than 1600 wink.gif
a 2 x4 kit would be easier to oc than a 4x4 kit also...but if you really need the extra ram then not much choice

like mentioned above you're going to need decent cooling on that chip. I suggest for air cooler either an NH-D14 or a Silverarrow, or put it under a water block. thumb.gif

Gaming is more about the fill rate etc and more dependent on graphic card power than CPU power. Games are more GPU bound. 2 x 560 is a nice choice.

if you could find a Cooler Master v6GT for around $40 id recommend that beast of a cpu cooler, that is if you have enough case room for it and its 2 120mm fans. great cpu cooler
