First congrats for your new rig, Its all fine but you could get more powerful GPU because your current one may struggle on your native resolution in modern games so you will need to run those games on low-medium on 1680 x 1050 or you will need to reduce your resolution.

A GT630 isn't really a gaming card so you definitely want to upgrade that. A 30GB SSD is only enough for the OS really. SSD are so cheap now you can easily buy a 120GB.

Better GPU by reducing RAM. Almost no games require 16 GB of RAM. And if you're gaming, don't go for the FX-8120, since you don't need "So-called AMD 8 Cores" Get a Phenom or an Intel i3/i5 or something. [Just saying, I'm not an Intel fanboy, but AMD makes me mad with the FX series -.-]

Try this link https://rapidshare.com/files/2093506091/Orochi-CEG.zip this works for me fine. leave the program in the zip/winrar folder, DON'T extracted the Orochi-CEG program. You will need to run the program after every re-power of your Rig. :D

Even though FX-8120 is much more cheaper than Core i5-3570. I will still go with Intel's products because AMD/ATI products is I think only for gaming. Intel products can do much more multitasking than AMD/ATI products.

i would have to say the 8120 would be better sence its 8 core and the A8-370k is quad but if you want the most videocard permanence then the A8 is the way to go can get crossfire performance just lose out on 4mb of l2 scene a8 only has 4mb and 8120 has 8mb and has L3 8mb witch the a8 also don't have so i would go with the 8120 be the best bet down the road easy overclocking to mines a 5ghz :)
