Hi, I'm currently building a gaming PC and am wondering how all this will work together.
If you could, any feedback or upgrades would be appreciated!

Stuff I already purchased, before I revised my computer list:
Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) Vengeance DDR3
CoolerMaster Storm Enforcer
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB WD1002FAEX


Stuff I need to get
Windows 7 64-bit
ASRock 990FX Extreme3 Motherboard
AMD FX-8150 8-Core Processor
v6 GT CPU cooler

I also need help picking a power supply.
Any help appreciated. Cheers!

What graphics card do you plan to use and do you plan to overclock? You could save some money get the FX-8120 which is basically lower clock then the FX-8150 but you can easily match the FX-8150 with a simple increase.

That will all work but I do suggest the following change-outs.

Cooler: XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 - This is a very quiet cooler and I use a nearly identical cooler with that exact same processor. Remember, this is an HDT cooler with a different thermal compound application method.

Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ - ASRock is an Asus budget brand that is good for many, but with gaming or performance, I would stick with Asus. I use this board to good results.
