  1. Best answer
    I wouldn't have an SSD. I'd use a HDD or SSHD - you need more than 120GB.

    The CPU is weak and GPU strong - not a good match

    Put in prices. Give budget without KB and mouse.

    eg

    CPU: AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz 8-Core Processor ($136.99 @ NCIX US)
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($28.52 @ OutletPC)
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-D3P ATX AM3+/AM3 Motherboard ($69.99 @ Newegg)
    Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($81.99 @ Newegg)
    Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($53.98 @ OutletPC)
    Video Card: MSI Radeon R9 270X 2GB TWIN FROZR Video Card ($179.99 @ Micro Center)
    Case: Corsair 300R ATX Mid Tower Case ($47.99 @ Micro Center)
    Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($68.99 @ NCIX US)
    Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ($16.99 @ Newegg)
    Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8 (OEM) (64-bit) ($97.48 @ OutletPC)
    Total: $782.91

    That is a very nice build but get rid of the razer stuff and buy cheap keyboard and mouse and get i5 4690k cpu instead or GTX970 following with i5 4690k as soon as you get the money because pentium might bottleneck your gpu, i know it's awesome little cpu that you can overclock extremely but still it is pentium
  4. That's partly why I asked for prices. Its otherwise assumed you're in the US. And you still haven't given prices.

    Try -

    CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($125.00 @ CPL Online)
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-D3P ATX AM3+/AM3 Motherboard ($106.00 @ CPL Online)
    Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($99.00 @ CPL Online)
    Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($60.00 @ Centre Com)
    Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X 2GB WINDFORCE Video Card ($225.00 @ CPL Online)
    Case: Corsair 300R ATX Mid Tower Case ($99.00 @ CPL Online)
    Power Supply: Antec High Current Gamer 520W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($98.00 @ CPL Online)
    Optical Drive: LG GH24NSB0 DVD/CD Writer ($19.00 @ CPL Online)
    Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM) (64-bit) ($107.00 @ CPL Online)
    Total: $938.00
  5. If you're sticking with the Pentium you'll want a decent cooler to get the best OC's. something like the Hyper Evo 212 by Coolermaster which is about $38 AUD
