Well iam building a strict budget gaming pc and i aint got lots of money. So here it is. Any help would be appreciated. Here are the stuff iam going to buy.

HDD: HDD Desktop WESTERN DIGITAL Caviar Green (3.5", 1TB, 64MB, SATA III-600)
CASE: Colorovo AX-201 (12 cm LED fan) (pretty cheap thats why.)
PSU: CORSAIR VS550 550Watt PSU For SI PSU
MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte GA-970A-D3, AMD 970, DualDDR3-1866, SATA3, RAID, ATX
CPU : AMD FX-6350 6C 125W AM3+ 14M 4.2G BOX (stock cooler)
RAM : Kingston HyperX 2x4GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM Anniversary Series
GPU : ZOTAC GeForce GTX 660, 2GB DDR5 (192 Bit), HDCP, DVI, HDMI, DP, BOX
CD DRIVE : cheapest bastard i can get witch could read and burn dvds.

If you know any part that would be practically the same price and a bit better please post it here! Take note that iam living in Europe :)

fx 6350 is just a overclocked fx 6300 hence has higher tdp and u will have difficulty cooling it with a stock cooler and ur case
u can just get fx 6300 or get a aftermarket cooler
also get hd 7870 it is a better gpu and costs around the same
