RAM: G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR (77$)

CPU: AMD FX-8320 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor FD8320FRHKBOX (160$)

Graphics Card: GIGABYTE GV-R785OC-1GD Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card (180$)


So far I've picked out these parts but I'm having trouble finding a compatible motherboard. My maximum fund is 600$ and I'm looking for a computer that can do some basic gaming, but can be upgraded in the future for more advanced games. I also would like to know how my spending % is, or if I should replace some of these items. I'm currently shopping at NewEgg. Thanks!

This is the build that i would recommend as it has better graphics card, and the 6300 performs almost the same to the 8320 in gaming, so there is no point in getting one..
