Thats an interesting setup to be sure. 7790 is a brilliant choice at that price no doubt. Usually the crown for this price range goes to the 7850, but at that discount theres no competition.

But as usual, FX-6300 is generally the optimal choice for CPU, Its got more cores, it overclocks more, its got a colossal jump in Cache and uses roughly the same amount of electricity. And only costs $10 more.
