Looks nice, but probably could use a little bit more cable management. +1

If you want you can remove the top hard drive cage for better airflow through the case. Other than that nice build.

Awesome build. Good choice CPU. I would've go 3570k or 4670k depending on deals. AMD though for sure my first gaming proccesor choice would be the FX-8350 followed by the FX-4300. Also, that case has a removable HDD cage. MY case does too and i removed it to optimize my airflow, just a suggestion might want to do that as well. Next time ou should probly go with a WD Black, they run faster.

The higher the design number doesn't necessarily mean its the greatest part for the person or even the entirety of the part type. He could have went with the 8-core 3.5Ghz 8320 and OC'd for the same if not better results as a 8350. Next going with a faster HDD isn't always the ONLY choice. If you read the title its a gaming/HTPC build. He chose a 2TB caviar green for its size safely assuming on my mind as a pure media drive. With a black or blue yeah he would see faster loading times of the files on this drive and could maybe gain 3-10 seconds of his life. But once the file loads he doesn't really benefit from the drive as it doesn't affect movie quality a whole lot. On the same note as that a 2TB green vs a 2TB black on the price difference is pretty sizable and doesn't pay out to have faster loading speeds per dollar he spends. In all honesty as a "rookietechsavy" person you could maybe do a tad bit more research in the uses of a specific part and maybe understand a bit more about why a person may choose their parts. Now if he didn't have a HTPC attached I would too question his need of a caviar green as it would degrade performance it many aspects... media files are largely unaffected in this instance, games/coding files would see major performance drops though.

10/10. Viable points listed, excellent read.

,but even if he gotten the 8320 to overclock, I would recommend the 990fx chipset mobo.

well anyways..it's an very nice build, but a little pricey in my opinion. +1 nonetheless.

I too would have went for a 990FX and I forgot to point that out too. But non-the-less he will have a great performance computer for his needs. Glad a few people on this site have a bit of sense in the fact that "biggest and most expensive" isn't the best for everything. +1

Not saying you don't know much, you had some pointers that didn't necessarily fit the bill on this build. Case and point I personally am only 20 and I'm a Pre-Med student, so my profession won't revolve around building computers and I've only built a few computers prior to signing up with pcpartpicker. With that said I don't know ALL but I research A LOT on these things and make it a hobby. If you take the time to research specifics, and understand what a specific build needs you tend to relay more accurate information to those who ask.

Simply put; research a topic to understand why it is that way. If it doesn't add up then question it! Happy building!

Couldn't have said it better myself. Personally, I don't know **** about AMD CPUs and chipsets (sorry, always been an Intel person), so I generally stay out of those conversations without doing significant research.

Not bad. Better than I expected. I would run some real benchmarks Cuz windows score is based on the lowest category and really says nothing about the gaming performance. +1

you really need to tell us in the description whats being used for, that gives some the answer to vote
