You're going to want to read some threads on computer building, especially if you're looking to build a gaming rig. There are many things wrong with the build, although theoretically everything will go together and work "fine", but I'll give you a few of the over view points:

1. PSU - that unit is junk, the PSU is going to be an expensive piece of your system because all the components in your computer rely on it. I wouldn't recommend trusting a $40 PSU to deliver 700W [at which point I should mention your RIG as configured will use ~ 200 - 250W max]

2. Video card - Low end, if you're looking to game start with a 7770 and go up from there depending on budget.

3. HDD - its going to be extremely slow, SSD's are getting extremely inexpensive, if you want for a little while you should be able to find the Samsung 840 [non pro] on sale for ~ $275 - 300

4. CPU / motherboard combo is on its last legs, my recommendation is to look at the intel side.

My suggestion is to ask what others would suggest for your max budget, plenty out there will point to good sales on items and other systems out there. If you want to figure it out on your own, look around in the post to see what are popular bang for the buck combos. It takes a little while to figure out what works best with what, and what will work for your budget if you're just getting into this. Good luck and welcome to OCN thumb.gif

Looks good except for the power supply. Try to get a SeaSonic instead of what you have there. You might want to spend a bit more on the video card. The rest looks just fine to me.

I'd recommend either the Seasonic G-450 or the Rosewill CAPSTONE-450 as the PSU for your rig.

What?

First off... that cpu is less than 6 months old.... and VERY good for the price range, in fact, intel has absolutely nothing to compete with it at $140. The dual core i3's are not worth it anymore with gaming, especially since the 6300 has plenty of overclock headroom if one wanted to OC that is. Secondly, that motherboard is one of the best ones for the price on the AMD platform... so I still have absolutely no clue where you got the "combo is on it's last legs, my recommendation is to look at the intel side" idea from, because it's absurd.


As far as the gpu is concerned, I'd start with a 7770 and go up from there, assuming budget allows for it? Actually on that note, it would be more help if you could let us know how much you want to spend?

My concern is that ASRock motherboard may need a bios update to work with a FX-6300.

Asus R2.0 boards such as this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131873
or this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131874
will not need a bios update to work with a FX-6300.

Is this PC for gaming? $119 for ram seems expensive.
If possible, dont buy a hard drive and instead start with a SSD. Buy a hard drive later, when you have more money.
120-128GB SSD is enough space for at least a few of your favorite games and still have space for other things.

Instead of using the stock cpu cooler, I recommend the Zalman CNPS5X Performa.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118128
It's inexpensive and easy to install on AMD motherboards. It mounts similiar to the stock cooler. no backplate installation.
There are 2 mounting positions: for intel and for AMD. default position is for intel. Read instructions and remember to change position to AMD.

Arctic MX-4 thermal compound.

The build looks good for a nice starter computer. The only thing is maybe look into a better power supply maybe a corsair cx series.

Nice thanks for the help guys I want to point out this is not going to be a gaming rig and I'll be sure to find another PSU you think 500 will be ehnough because I'm thinking of getting this graphics card instead http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161427

And this mother board my budget pretty cheap max 550 http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B007NOWDEM/ref=redir_mdp_mobile?ref_=pd_rhf_gw_p_t_2_8XEY

Change the PSU, if you need a reference guide, check the Good PSU link in my sig.
Change the GPU to a 7770 if the budget permits it.
For the HDD, try to get one with a 64MB cache with 7200RPM speed. Try Seagate.
Everything else is pretty good, nice job for your first build.
Use PCPartsPicker.com and it will find the best deal for you automatically.

Also change the ram to something cheaper, 8GB of 1600MHz will be more then enough.
