    Everything seems fine. Except the PSU. 950w is way overkill for your system. I would go with a good quality 600w like this

    Sounds good. My specs are:
    i5-3570k Oc to 4.3ghz
    AMD Radeon HD6950 2gb (880/1250)
    h100i
    WD Blue & Green
    and like 9 case fans.

    and I run perfectly fine with 750w.

    7850 only has one 6-pin, it draws 150W under full load, FX6100 is probably around 110W at load, everything else is say 100W.
    Doing maths: 100+110+150 you get 360W, for crossfire that's 510W

    Because you are going cheap on the PSU, a 750W powercool is probably 600W in reality, and 500W after a year of use. I'd recommend paying 10$ or so extra to get a good PSU (a 550W good brand is enough, they are 600W in reality) such as an Antec, Corsair, Enermax, etc; check for "80 PLUS"

    Not sure why you want crossfire if it's a semi gaming rig, but anyway, instead of crossfire look at a bigger/better GPU; it's more efficient like that.

    Don't go with a FX-6100. For the same price on Newegg you can get a FX-6300. AMD's zambezi processors aren't the best. They aren't bad, but they aren't as good as the Vishera series.

    Here are some benchmarks. http://www.cpu-world.com/benchmarks/AMD/FX-6300.html

    Erm 3.5Ghz it turbos up to 3.9Ghz the little brother to that the 3770K under quad setup can boost up to 4.2Ghz when it is rated for 3.9Ghz...its something weird about the turbo setup on the cores..

    Whats your max budget? Depending on budget, you could easily get a Much more powerful graphics card then the gtx 660

    oh yeah, you could EASILY fit a better gpu than the gtx 660 with that budget

    (also, ill go ahead and use the UK version of pcpartpicker, as you listed that currency first, so ill guess that thats your actual currency, however, if your main is actually, US $, please say so, as then you can get an even better gpu):

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks


    CPU: AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz 8-Core Processor (£107.92 @ Amazon UK)
    CPU Cooler: Corsair H75 54.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler (£59.23 @ Aria PC)
    Motherboard: Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard (£49.49 @ Ebuyer)
