Why the 8150 and not a 8350? Is it too late to return?

Looks like a fine build and I think you'll be pretty happy with it. Plan to overclock?

I would of never invested in Bulldozer. Why did you choose the 8150 over the 8350? Not here to judge or make you feel bad or anything but the 8350 would of been my first choice.

Honestly, you can go with a 750 watt PSU and still have a lot of headroom. You can use that difference to go Intel. You can get a quality mid-range good OC mobo for less than that Asus model if you have a strict budget.

i could have went lower on the psu but i got this one for 180 when they were about 300$ so i bought it

Should have saved money on a lesser PSU and got 7850's instead. When throwing that much cash at a PC never go last gen.

Some advice post builds your thinking about first here for feedback, before buying. These guys will help you save cash and get the best bang for your buck.

Welcome and enjoy. thumb.gif
