Everything in there is pretty decent, though I would've suggested just dropping an extra $30 and going with the FX-6300 which uses less power and overclocks much further than the PII 965, but the Phenom II is still great. Games of today aren't as CPU-bound as a lot of wannabe tech-experts make them out to be.

I built a Gaming PC before xmas, an AMD build, and im delighted with it.

I did a lot of reading up, i learned so much about AMD & Nvidia, CPUs & GPUs, RAM, the motherboard etc... in the space of a week and did very well choosing the right parts but one thing i overlooked and went cheap on that i regretted big time. The PSU(Power Supply Unit).
I assumed the higher the wattage the better, so i bought this cheap 750w PSU. It basically collapsed from doing the windows experience rating just as i had everything up and going.

I did my research and learned a lot regarding PSUs. I ended up getting an Antec 550w PSU thats doing a great job for me.

The new A10-6800k apu has released and looks pretty awesome. Out of the box with 4.4 ghz clock speed and the new architecture for gpu. Sells for 149 dollars or 115 pounds here. Couple that with 2133mhz ddr3 memory and crossfire it with one of the compatible gpus which are like 60-70 pounds.

I looked at some Thai website, and the guy who tested out the 6800k got a stable overclock at 5.4GHz. That's insane. I'm actually gonna buy one since I'm going to Socket FM2 in anticipation of Kaveri. AMD's APU's are great bang for the buck.

i really hope more and more people switch over to AMD pcs.
they really great when it comes to cost effectiveness and quality. 2 main things which are hard to over-look.
sure, it may not be the best of the best with whats in the market but you get more for the amount you pay.
