AMD Budget gaming build

So,
I'm building my first budget gaming pc (coming across from console) and just wanted to know if I would run into issues with these components. I already have a case its a thermaltake commander ms-II and a GPU, Galaxy GTX 460 1GB(gift from a mate). the components im purchasing are as follows. for the CPU a AMD FX 6300, mobo is a asrock 970 extreme 4, PSU an ANTEC hcg 620w modular, for ram im getting 2x4gb of corsair vengeance cas 9 and 1600mhz at 1.5v,for cpu cooler im goin with cooler master hyper-212 EVO and last but not least im just getting 1TB WD cav blue for storage. Ill be upgrading the gpu in roughly 6 months as well as chuckin in an SSD.
This pc will mainly be used for gaming and to learn to art of overclocking :) . Any advice or suggestions would be awesome as this is my first attempt at building a PC.

Cheers in advance

  1. Better change the board to Gigabyte 970a-ud3 for better overclocking support. Other than that, good setup :)
  2. Looks good. Corsair isn't always the cheapest though, and you don't really need to go for 1.5V on an AMD build.
  3. thanks for your quick reply,
    that motherboard does not exist in Australia haha I have searched everywhere!!! is that the best motherboard for OCing at round the $100 mark?

  4. I see. Asrock 970 extreme4 is the best budget AM3+ mobo in Australia then.
  5. What's your budget?
    I just built an AMD based rig for about 1,200-1,300.

    AMD 8350 FX BLK EDTN
    MSI 990XA-GD55
    16 gb patriot viper 3 1866
    Gigabyte HD 7970 3gb oc
    Oc z series 1000w
    64 gb SSD
    3 tb hdd
    Thermaltake ms-1 commander
    Cm v6 gt

    Works great and is a champ for what I need it to do ;D

    Just thought I'd throw it out for someone who is thinking of a custom amd

    64gb SSD is quite small and you'll never need a 1KW PSU with this etup.
