Thread Starter 
So i Need a gaming computer and this is my build right now. My friend is giving me a free AMD Radeon 6770 HD until i can upgrade it next month and hes also giving me this power supply for $55. i will be upgrading what i can in the next month or two. I want to play LoL, Warz, DAYZ, CSGO and others shooters Bf3-4 when it comes out. I just want to make sure this is good for my money and will not **** out on me any time soon and will run the games i want. I will be ordering this tonight i just want some insight.

Don't have time to review everything but a DEFINITE is to swap that 8150 for a 8320

also, for a budget build you don't need a near $200 motherboard.. put that money else where.. again, sorry not enough time to make a list so i'll let others chime in

the 8320 is a good deal faster & runs cooler than the 8150 AND right now it has a 15 off coupon promo placing it at $145 so it's cheaper, too. This promo ends tonight so... yea. Even if the promo ends hands down do NOT get a 8150

700W is overkill. 550-600W is fine if you want to overclock a bit. Pick a PSU that won't blow up on you from HERE. Rosewill Capstones and HIVEs are on sale on Newegg for the next week or so.

An SSD is nice but difficult to fit into your budget.

Also, I recommend you get an FX-8320 or 8350. The 81x0 is the last-gen Bulldozer architecture. 83x0 is Piledriver, the newer one. You should also get an aftermarket cooler and silver thermal paste. Eight cores spit out heat. Cooler Master 212+/212 EVOs (pick the cheaper one) are the best bang for your buck in that regard.

Finally, what GPUs are you looking at after this? It might be worth it to downgrade to an FX-6300, since games aren't yet heavily multi-threaded, and use that money on a better GPU.

Get the FX-6300 and the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 / ASRock 970 Extreme4.
Or, if you can wait a few months, build yourself a Steamroller system in Q1 '14. Steamroller will have more IPC (instructions per clock) than Piledriver (the architecture the FX-6300 and 8320 are based on), which will result in higher framerates, faster encoding, and make everything better. I think it may even be competitive against Intel's Haswell line.

Cheers.
