no, wait for piledriver to come out, and then wait for the prices to drop. also, most games are more graphics heavy than cpu heavy, so i would rather get a good video card than a cpu

OP I would suggest a 7870 GPU.You really won't need anything higher for a single 1080P screen.This one will match your color scheme

Yeah, peple often forget fot a first build you gotta buy alot more stuff than a simple upgrade

i got myself 8120 with just 16 GB RAM running four virtual machine 64bit host Linux and BSD while converting video and draws 2D in background and still have 10GB++ RAM to spend smile.gif

Thread Starter 
So everyone I have just completed some upgrades to the first system build I have completed.

I took some of the information people gave me and have completed the following.

Put 2 x sapphire 7950's in crossfire and added an XSPC watercooling system. I have upgraded the radiator from the standard one (DX 240) to the AX 240 and it is much better.

What have I found, I am having trouble finding stable overclock settings on the 7950's and XSPC DO NOT include the fan screws and the radiator screws in the kit only in a radiator bought separately.

I can overclock the 8150 to a stable and very cool 4.8 ghz with a massive 10 deg C drop when the CPU is at max load.

Anyone with stable overclock setting for the 7950 it would be appreciated and I have not watercoled the GPU's at this stage.

Future upgrades will be watercooling the GPU'S and anyone that can give the best advice on how to do this with the current watercooling system would be great.
