3rd it. Fantastic build for the money, no doubt. Chuck in a half-decent CPU cooler and just get that FX8320 up to 4.5ghz for happiness. OC the 7870 some more, since these components are nice mid-range ones with plenty of spare performance just waiting to be unlocked. You'll be maxing or near maxing the vast majority of games. Settings adjusted, the rest will be fine too.

I 4th this build (lol of course I do) mainly due to the fact that its upgradable, as soon as you get yourself a good, cheap cooler like the Xigmatek Dark Knight, you will have a blazing fast rig.

PS: I suggest switching out the case for this one

Gunna say flat out no, you will get much much better performance with these AMD processors.

For that price point, there's no reason to go Intel unless all you play are old games at low resolutions. That build that ADHD proposed is UN-beatable, and will run today's and tommorows games with absolute ease.

Thank you, yes there isn't a single intel processor at the same pricepoint that can beat the 8320. No joke, this Intel Core2 Quad is the fastest INTEL processor at this price point. The 8320 absolutely, positively massacre that core2 quad.

Here is a chart for you

You can't beat AMD in value for money. Count me as a 5th? Lol
