I have just ordered this, yes I know the PSU is overkill but I want to upgrade this later with a r9 270 and a new APU. I would like to know your guys opinions on this build :)

EDIT: I am also going to add another 8GB stick to this for 16gb :)

a r9 270 and a new APU

R9 270 would render the APU useless; better to put that into a more powerful CPU

Any good CPU's that support FM2+? Cheers.

Looking at benchmarks and forums, unless you really want to get the 7850k you're about as good as it'll get for AMD it seems. May as well OC the CPU and throw the GPU in and roll with that OR take a jump to Intel's 1150 chipset

Sorry for the late reply, don't get much time on this.

Liking the idea of a 7850k, I might add a 750ti or r9 260. Good prices on both of them in the UK right now.

Get a 860k, its a 7850k with the gpu disabled. Use that money saved to get ar9 270x
