VRMs aren't particularity good, also, thats a 760G chipset, not a 960G, there was no 960G chipset. Might want to hold off an some OCing until you get a better board.

Board is not that good pretty low end.

But the fx 6300 is a pretty solid chip. And with some overclocking the thing is better then getting a i3.

Though I would not even try to overclock with that board, if you ever wanna try overclocking sell that mobo and pick up a better one.


OP also think about buying a SSD, probably one of the most noticeable improvements you can do on a PC.


Like what was said before a 260x or 265 would be the best bang for your buck.

He doesn't need a card anymore... A 7850 is included.

Ahh right, that's a bit of a bummer in terms of the board frown.gif. I don't think im going to OC the CPU, but was thinking to get an FX 8350 in a year or 2 if the price is right. In terms of the more immediate, that's what I was thinking about the PSU - I may try and get a new one sooner rather than later. The pc should be here in the next 5 days or so. Just wanted to ask what you guys thought the specs are like compared to a ps4/x1.

Cheers for all the advice, I ended up buying a new system on the basis of what you guys advised redface.gif
