  1. Why AMD? Go for an i3 with a H110 or a H170 mobo.
    Get a better PSU like a Seasonic S12II-620.
  2. Looks pretty good.
    i'd prefer samsung ssd over the kingston and for the psu: seasonic over coolermaster as i can't remember how well that psu was rated (i'm sure someone will tell you if it's one of coolermasters bad psus).

    im going with a corsair cx500m instead and as for the cpu i prefer the fx6300 over the i3, cos from what ive seen the fx has a better price to performance value

    As long as you're not buying cheap Chinese SSDs from Ebay brand doesn't really matter (unless you're making an SSD NAS).

    Corsair CX are also junk.

    Better price-to-performance does not equate to better performance in games.

    CX 500M is a poor quality PSU for running a GPU, its made for basic computers and generally runs into problems with a strong power draw.

    Very likely for the same exact price you could get an i3-6100 and an H110 motherboard that would absolutely demolish that FX-6300 setup and not be old outdated technology. At this point the FX platform is a waste of money.

    Mr Kagouris has put together a build for you above that is worlds better than yours and a far better use of your money.
  6. would i be able to overclock the i3?

    No, the processor is locked and there are no unlocked i3's, you would need to move up to an i5-6600k, and a Z170 motherboard.

    There were some lower boards that did allow a little overclocking of locked chips but that feature has been removed, and bards that can do it are rare now.
  8. And as for the cooler considering i wouldnt b overclocking shud i buy a cooler for it or no?
  9. No, but trust me overclocking doesn't save the FX-6300 because by the time you actually overclock it enough to have good performance you're spending so much on the cooling that you'd be able to afford an i5 instead.
  10. ok man thanks alot for ur help appreciate it
