>>323151686 Honestly, im kinda new to a lot of this and have no idea what the function of a SSD is. >>323151742 I did intend to leave room for upgrade and I do eventually plan on OC. However, should I go for a more high tier CPU? or Lower GPU?
The 8350 is OKAY for gaming, if that at all. They say an i3 is better, I don't believe that though, but that's not the point. Your CPU will be 100% bottlenecking your system when you go over 1080p (if you do) and in newer games even at 1080p, even if you OC it to 5Ghz. I would suggest an i5 at least (it's like what, $30-$40 more?), i7 for 1440p gaming and streaming, if you're going to be doing that.
In terms of GPU I would go for a Sapphire 390, but that's just personal choice. When I give people suggestions, I always leave the GPU choice to them, just give both options. The 970 and the whole >3.5 meme is something to be conscientious about and by buying this card you encourage this kind of behavior further down the road. The benefits of the 970 are the free games and lower power consumption, but the 390 does run quieter and cooler nevertheless (and it has 8GB of ram, though no one actually needs that much). So it doesn't really matter.
But yeah, I would suggest to leave out the cooler and get an i5. Otherwise it's a totally fine build. If you don't want your CPU to bottleneck but don't want to go Intel, you can try a 9k series AMD CPU, but eh, those aren't really for gaming either.
>>323151938 SSD has superior read/write speeds compared to HDD. Down size is that they're still more expensive, although costs have been going to down. I'd get one to put at least your OS on, so that you can boot up in a few seconds, but if you have extra space you can also put your favorite game(s) on it
The SSD is flash memory, which means it will work blazing fast with an OS and some games on them. In games they mostly decrease load times and chances of pop-in. In the OS it's boot times and all sorts of speed in terms of loading applications and photoshop and vegas and whatnot. Usually a part of all builds nowadays.
CPUs and GPUs are compatible in all ways. It is "said" that Intel works better with Nvidia and AMD with AMD, but I have heard nothing specific or technically descriptive about this, so I consider it bullshit. No idea about hte 970 BIOS, you can get a card with a BIOS switch so you'd have a backup bios if you're that worried about it. That specific GPU is very cool though (literally, 60-65 under load), but I don't know if it has a bios switch.

Wont go into AMD processor as you seem to have your heart set. Also please can you at least fucking learn a little bit about computers before fucking building one? Jesus even if it's just lurking /g/ for like a week or reading the wiki there.
i5 307k OC'd to 5.0GHz 16 GB DDR3 RAM GTX 970 (got it free from a guy)
Your CPU is the most important thing when it comes to emulating but your GPU will handle shaders, textures and all the other stuff it would normally handle. The CPU will emulate the system, most console features (special 3d/shader effects etc. The GC is easier to emulate than PS2 only due to better code emulator wise
