Motherboard is a no for me. 8-cores CPU need quality motherboard or VRMs overheat.

That PSU isn't good, I would suggest a better motherboard, what country are you in, what is your budget, link to partlist, are you using mail in rebates, do you care how good your steam is?

I'm in America, my budget is around 500, http://pcpartpicker.com/list/wT3sm8 , this is honestly my first time getting into building a PC since I'm trying to switch over from consoles so I don't understand how the mail in rebates work, and I'm assuming you meant stream so I'd like to have a respectable one.
