If you want a better experience, by an Intel CPU, i don't recommend AMD at all.
An i5 or i7 would work if it is for gaming. (Depends on your pocket :P)

Note: There is no big difference between i5 and i7 when it comes for gaming.

As for the other parts they are cool, but the CPU is shitty imo.

First things first:
Motherboard and CPU don't go along. You can't combine an AMD CPU with an Intel Chipset.


Grab an i3 or i5 (that supports socket 1150) or grab a motherboard that supports FM2 sockets.

I'd always go with Asus.

However you will need a new gen i-series CPU from Intel.

I approve the case :D I also use an aerocool(Strike-X) case and I fucking love it!

I'm using an Asus mobo with FM2 and have an AMD 6400k and I'm happy with it.

For a psu I'd go for 600+W aerocool :)
