Looks like a nice build . I personally use Intel , so cannot advise on the AMD kit . I would say to try and source a 7200RPM HDD , rather than the slower 5400RPM you have selected . The Samsung SSD is awesome , fitted one recently , and with the rapid tech activated OMG ! so fast it will melt your face off ! I do advise trying to source your MoBo , CPU , Cooler and RAM as a tested bundle from one supplier , who will overclock for you . Good luck !

Those components should work well together, I've got the 8320 which has been overclocked to 4.2GHZ using a liquid cooler. Despite the benchmarks and user opinions out there bashing AMD I will say that I haven't had any issues and with my paired Nvidia 660GTX everything I throw at it runs fairly well. My previous processor was a Phenom X4 840 and under gaming I have noticed the difference in performance.

I would second using a faster hard drive than the WD Green, go for the blue instead as the Green drives are designed more for storage rather than performance. I have 4 green drives in a RAID in my computer which are used for backups.

I run a Toshiba 7200RPM 1TB drive next to my Kingston Hyper X SSD for gaming duties.
