Don't worry about all the intel fanboys either, I went with the i5 for two reasons:
1. Found it as a good deal for CPU + Mobo here on the forums.
2. Didn't need the power of my previous i7, had it watercooled so been there done that.

I built my current rig for about the same price as yours more or less, had a few of the parts already.

I've always respected AMD and I was either going with that or the i5 line as a downgrade from what I had. Good job on unlocking the cores btw, not all chips can do that.

You should have no trouble running your games on that 460 either, I just built my friend a rig with it and he loves it. Best bang for your buck GPU if you ask me.

Be sure to check out the sale forums as you can find some great deals if/when you decide to upgrade.

Last thing, I personally don't reccomend OC'ing the GPU as you wont notice a huge difference in real world applications. Key word here is "real world" before everyone attacks me. Yeah, you will get a higher 3dmark score if you are after e-peen but imo the heat/fan noise isn't worth it to me. I just stick to CPU OC'ing as I no longer have a water cooling system.

Oooooh a Mod responded! Thanks. I'm trying to bring my boss into the OCN fold. He's never built a computer and now wants to try. I told him that this site is cool and has alot of knowledgeable folks.
