A word of advice before installing your new CPU in the board, some boards do not support the new bulldozer CPUs out of the box and need an older CPU installed first to update the BIOS, then swap for the new CPU

So if you can't get it to boot, try that first

Haha, my first build I screwed the mobo into the case without those screws that lift the board up, and I didn't know why it wasn't turning on...Yeah, not my greatest start ever :p at least it didn't break!

But yes, those parts look fine to me, though I can't say much about AMD CPU equipment because I've only used Intel myself. And once you use that SSD, you'll wonder how you ever survived on a Samsung Spinpoint! I have a 1TB one too and use it as my game drive now.

Hope your build goes nice and smoothly :D

Reported for misleading title!
Not really,
The build sucks tho. Send it to me, I'll get rid of it for you
(or just keep it for myself and save a ton of money) :p
it's cheap and tacky, and may the lord have mercy on your soul


Nah, not really, looks like an awsome build, congrats and hope it's what you were expecting
(man I should really think about upgrading again... darn bills!)

My first build in damn near 7 years is finally ordered thanks to you guys. I just want to say thank you for all the help. I went from this... Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 OC'd to 3.24GHz Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 ATI X1950XTX 512MB 2GB XMS2 Corsair RAM Samsung Spinpoint 1TB HDD To this... AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz ASRock 970 EXTREME3 XFX Core Edition Radeon HD 7850 2GB G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB Logitech G500 Logitech K800 SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series Fractal Design Define R4 *BLACK PEARL* The REASON I'm posting besides saying thank you, is because if there are any suggestions that make sense I can always return a product for another one. An example would be the video card is just as powerful as a cheaper one. I'm looking at pure specs but I've seen some threads where people suggest cheaper products that are much much better. But if there is none of that, this is my new rig after all the questions I've asked. Thanks guys, and gals.


Nice Build Bro...

I have an 8350 and it Rocks.. the 4100 rocks just as well for the 4 core.
you'll have no problems.

Gameing wise there is Little Difference between 4100/81xx and 8350 you'll love it.
And I only have a Single 7750 for my GPU but I can run Crysis 3 Fine (custom High settings)
So its all good i'll run 2x 7750's sometime and get 2x the speed anyway.

Take care.. can't wait to see your posts about your built System. etc.

Congratulations. I've always wanted to build myself a computer, but for some reason I don't know why I haven't yet. I don't game anymore, and my last computer I had from 2007-2010 which was a 17" Dell Laptop that held up 15 months of Iraq sand.

LOL. Man I almost didn't do it but my girlfriend who knows nothing about computers talked me into it since according to her I deserve it. Bills suck but they have to be paid, pick up a side hustle and make some more cash and make the new build!

Thanks man I appreciate the information. I may call Newegg tomorrow and see what I can do about sending back the 8150 and grabbing a 8350. It's only a couple bucks more.
