Wasted money on the ram, and an i7 will not help with games at all.  And that is a lie that AMD CPUs and GPUs work better together.  OP ignore his post.


Wrong.

PSU is overkill already, i wouldn't bother changing it since it's already a great unit, case is up to you but make sure it has cable management slots, will look like cutouts on the inside back wall of it

Battery? You mean Power Supply? It's fine already.

Also, if you want a sexier case, go for the Bitfenix shinobi, Coolermaster Storm Scout, or NZXT Switch 810 or Phantom 410.

8350 is nearly as good as 3570k but far cheaper and can match it with OC but uses a bit more power, but if you have anything that can use the extra threads it should to a decent bit better (ie, rendering)

There it is. Only minor changes. :)

Btw, what does this Mean? Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Cooler Master Storm Scout ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports.

The USB ports are on the top, but the case doesn't have ports there. You might have to choose a different case. I think you wont have

to, considering you can use the back ports.

just means you wont be able to use the front USB 3.0 ports on the case, since the motherboard doesn't have the port for them, but you'll still be able to use the other parts of it, my case has the same problem and i just don't use them
