    Why are you comparing between a Pentium processor and an FX 8000 series? If you're going to spend around $200 on the processor, I'd recommend an i5. I wouldn't even consider the Pentium. If your budget is limited, at least get an FX 4100 ($100ish). Speaking of which, I still have an FX 4100 and motherboard I was planning on selling if you're interested.

    You won't need a sound card; motherboards come equipped with great audio chipsets these days.

    I wouldn't get an SSD if you're on a budget, put that money towards your graphics card or CPU.

    I'd personally recommend a Western Digital 500GB hard drive. I've got two running in my rig.

    A 7850's a great card but if you're looking for more power the GTX 670 is very powerful for its price.

    TBH you seem to be spending more than you have to.

    APU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819113280 (I have mine OC at 4.5 GHz)

    Motherboard- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138369 (Little cheap but i personally use one of these in my rig and it works amazing)

    Ram- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148661 (remember you need ram)

    GPU is fine a 7850 is good, although i would go for a 7870

    PSU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139028

    Everything else is up to you, just my suggestions. You dont really need a sound card thats just extra money.

    What does the sound card offer that the motherboard audio chipsets don't?

    Higher quality audio. If it is dedicated it is better.

    These days, not many soundcards offer any greater performance than the integrated chips. However that's up to your personal opinion. I'd recommend not buying one at first; get the essentials and then if the mobo audio isn't good enough, consider purchasing one.

    I need to pick on a few a things because LGA slots for the CPU are on most. That means I get intelcore

    If its AM3+ then I need AMD.


    I know that Intel core CPU runs best with NVIDIA.

    And AMD with radeon

    I know how to make a Pc I don't pick parts out of the blue.

    Jew Give me a price and if it has 2 PCI 3.0 i might buy it because im gonna be running 2 graphics card

    And i summed it down to all these im very open for suggestions if it can get me the same performance or somewhat same for a lower price. and i maybe i will not need 700w power for the Gpu and everything else.

    I'll sell you the mobo and CPU together for $150. The motherboard has PCI 2.0, but that's irrelevant for two reasons. One, and most importantly, no current GPUs consume the bandwidth of PCI 2.0 slots, much less 3.0, even in SLI/Crossfire. Two, the CPU doesn't have PCI 3.0 support. But like I said before, there's no point. The only time you may need 3.0 is if you were running three top of the line cards like GTX Titans or some such. For running two graphics cards, you'll be fine with 2.0.

    This thread goes into more detail about why 3.0 is not necessary: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1689401 A notable quote is "If the bandwidth on the cards interface was needed, AMD, Nvidia, Intel, Via and other most def would have updated to pci-e 3.0 or beyond years ago." PCI 3.0, for now, is just hype. Don't fall into marketing hype.

    Depending on the graphics cards you're running, I'd stick with a 700-750w PSU just to be safe. Here's a cheaper one that's a better brand in the PSU family, and higher wattage: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139021
