I just want to make sure i'm not bottlenecking any of my hardware, as well as any opinions relating to my choice of parts. This build will mostly be used for gaming.

For gaming, you really only need 8gb of ram. These would be fine, you can get cheaper if you want to, though not by much. If you're searching for cheaper, look for ddr3 1600, 2x4gb with 9 cas latency.

  • ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED should include a small tube of thermal compound. Arctic Silver 5 not a requirement.
  • AMD FX-8350 intended to be paired with DDR3-1866.
