How's it going, nice build ya got there, may I ask what type of gaming you want to be doing? If it's anything serious like BF4 or something of that sort I highlt recommend investing in a slightly better GPU, let us know the software you plan on using with it! Overall I'm an AMD fanboy and I apporove of this build! thumb.gif
--PS: If you plan on overclocking seriously that MoBo will hold you back a bit, it has a small Power Phase (4+1)

Thanks!I will be using it for:
GIMP(and hoprfully Adobe PS Elements in future)
Gaming-Crysis 3,Metro,anything I like.I'll only be using a screen of 1600X900 and the R7's streched my budget to max.It came a long way from the HD 7770 for Rs.8500 to the R7 @Rs.11-12000(depending on discounts).I'm changing the RAM to Corsair value series BTW.I won't be doing encoding or any complex tasks.My goal with this is to provide a good platform for current and upcoming games to run medium at around 35+ fps.
