will be a gaming PC.
the reason i written about budget because i'm in Hungary, so probably here we have higher prices than like US or UK so i can't tell you precisely. If you suggest alternatives with similar prices, that's great. Thanks.

in Hungarian Forint budget is around 220000-230000
so it would be around $1000 or 650 GBP or 750€

I just have more pleasant memories with AMD so that's why i prefer it. But every suggestion is welcome.

Do you have experience with ASROCK motherboards and MSI video cards? I heard something negative about their reliability, a year or two ago, this isn't the case now? Also if this build needs the 650W power supply, that means my original would also need higher than 500W? Also thanks for your advice, i like it by the way.

Yes the ASrock mobo are great boards and the Msi card is prob one of the best 660ti cards right now, i couldnt find the one i said earlier its the Msi 660ti power edition. The recommend power for this is like 400w and i used a 650 because then if you did add another video cards later you would still be ok, if you dont plan on sli then the 500w would be fine.

I believe there is a deal going on with that Mobo and the CPU and i think the Mobo also comes with 8gb ram so you would then have 16gb if you want or could just get the 8gb with the board

Thanks, looks like i can count on you.
My only problem is, i compared these prices on PCPartPicker, with those that i could get here and it seems my budget according to PCPartPicker is more like $850, maximum maybe ~$860-870. What would you change according to this?
