Soo, this is what i've come up with. Most of the parts is a part of a group-offer and costs about 1000$ not includng windows. Buying from a Norwegian website, because the taxes is soo high from american or Uk sites. Really want to know if this will work for gaming. Really just interested in you guys either saying yes for buy or no+eventual changes if this is really bad

In advantage:Thanks!

You really need a cooler for that 8350. The Coolermaster Hyper 212 is the usual go-to for a cheap effective solution for a mild overclock. Any more and you might be looking at water cooling (8350 is a beast).

Look at the BIOS note at the bottom of your list, and check with the supplier that the MOBO has an FX compatible BIOS, you never know if it has been sat on a shelf for years. Or just go for a more recent board with 990FX chipset.
