Yea, Thats really nice. I didn't think i'd be able to find a kit for 500 dollars. but 400 was my max for budget im still over, but not by much. Mainly worried about the cheap parts ie: u get what u pay for.

i would say on your build to change the fx 8150 for the 8120 and get a 99x or 99fx chipset mobo if you shop at new egg.
another idea is use your old hard drive,and get an ssd later,my hdd are rated as rubbish ,but they work fine.
i should be ashamed of them,there 160gb drives 3/gb with a 2mb cache,thats how bad they are rated.

Ok thx, I appreciate it. I'll look into that.

Get the 8120 over the 8150. It is the same cheap only cheaper... you could easily overclock it just as much as you could overclock the 8150.
I personally advise ASUS or Gigabyte motherboards as I have had nothing but the BEST experiences with them.
Might we be able to talk you into a small SSD for your OS/boot drive? =P
Common misconception among gamers is that you need a giant PSU to power your rig... I am running a I7 920 @ 4GHz HT Enabled, AMD HD 7850, RAID card, 4x5400RPM drives(RAID5), 2x10000RPM drives(RAID0), TV tuner, 6x2GB DDR3 1600MHz, and a liquid cooling setup all on my Corsair AX650 (80 plus gold 650W) and under full load (Folding at home) I only pull 300W... A power supply is most efficient around 50% load.
As to your video card... Don't they sell that card with a larger amount of memory? If so I advise getting the version with more VRAM as games etc on higher resolutions are going to chew through 1GB like it is nothing, I personally noticed a big difference going from 1GB -> 2GB of VRAM on my 32" screen.

Hope this helps, cheers =)

Edit: Oh I forgot... Piledriver is beginning production sometime Q3, we might see a Q4 launch on it, so you might want to consider holding off for that as even if its not a huge performance increase over bulldozer (It looks to be a fair bit better though) its resonating clock mesh (RCM) will greatly reduce heat/power consumption.

Well I have the video card already had it for awhile. I have had good luck with asrock, thats why i chose that board plus it would allow me to get into the fx series.

BTW I'm kinda worried about the PSU, mixed reviews. I've got it, and it turns on. But still looking at a diff cpu maybe.

Motherboard: http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=M5A99X-EVO-PB-R&cat=MBB $90
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147094 ..Some of the best available at this time..$24
CPU: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-hd96ztwfk4dgr $145
or..This is a nice cpu..I had the 460..and it was snappy..also may unlock to quad-core:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103886
I know,I know..It's old tech..but the new tech is slower frown.gif
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182200 Not the bestest..PSU is the most Important thing in any build..but this should do..$63.. If anything..
I'd get a big 'ol PSU + good cooling and forego videocard

What parts do you have already? headscratch.gif
