I was bored and wanted to give those people who want to get into gaming on a budget a good start possibly. The case is a HTPC case so it will fit pretty much anywhere you want it to go and it has good upgradability to it too if you want to get more into a higher end PC!

cheers mates!

You do not want to pair an FX-4100 (or pretty much any high end mobo) with the low end MSI 760G motherboard which is known for VRM failures running higher end processors.  A Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P rev 3.1 (not the rev 4) should provide a significantly more reliable VRM system at a similar price.

 

From where are you buying these parts?

im not building it, just was a cheap suggestion for someone who wants to get a gaming pc but on a tight budget. the parts are offered on newegg, but as my personal preference I do not like Gigabyte at all I tend to stay away from them. Msi is my second choice if my asus dosnt have what I want for the price I want

not my build, and the 960t would be a good competitor against FX-4100 but the am3+ socket offers much better upgradability vs the am3

It'd be a much better build with an i3 2100 and a newer motherboard.
