Default Is this a good build?

I was wondering if there was anything that I should tweak to make it better, or if I should start again from scratch.

Ditto. A budget of 900 bucks can build a very nice AMD rig. No need for an octo core BTW.

This computer is a going to be a computer that will last around 5-6 years. Many people have told me not to buy that processor, but they are thinking that this is just a one time buy. I'm planning on upgrading the VC, maybe the RAM. This computer is going to be made to last.

Plus I have already bought this. Though I am considering cancelling due to the overwhelmingly low reviews for Cyberpower...

Yha the cpu is abit of a waste... The other hmmmmmmmm? thing is the power supply... the 700W Generic is abit scarey.

Its a decent build, you'll enjoy it.

Do you think that it will be okay? It recommends only 400 something Watts but it has 700. It also has a 3 year warranty
