As for the 8320, I don't think the performance increase will be that great for the money. I've seen some benchmarks, and they really are neck and neck, if computers barely make use of the added cores, is 2 more cores worth the extra money?
Build Quality (20% of the final score) - We definitely found an issue with our samples with the broken +12V strands. Rosewill still hasn't found any units showing the same signs as mine. The last I heard they are checking their stock in Taiwan, which is where my units came from but so far, this is looking to be an isolated issue. Nonetheless, both of these samples showed signs of broken strands on the +12V wires so I'm pulling a point off for that. I also feel that the soldering needs improved more in some areas than others, which leaves me pulling another point there. An 8 here.

I've seen some reviews comparing bronze PSU's to Platinum, and the 25$ savings a year(my computer will most likely be on 24/7) seems to justify getting a platinum/gold psu over a bronze. Taking the chance on the Rosswill with the 7 year warranty isn't always the best option, but I don't want to skimp on a Power-supply; I never have, never will!

I'm seriously taking into account the PSU you've posted, but why bronze over silver/gold/platinum?
I do have a SSD, The difference is insane compared to a regular hard drive.
I will be buying all of this within the next 3 weeks! I have that time to decide on the Power-supply, keep 'em comin'

8350 paired with a G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) for only 244$. 244+140$ Motherboard=384$+Powersupply@ 100=484$. I've always been a Corsair fan, how are your thoughts on G.Skill paired with that gigabyte above?

G.Skill is an excellent brand of ram, in fact I am running a 4 GB DDR-3 1333 Mhz kit of it myself and zero problems with it...
Go for it!!
