AMD FX-6300 Budget Build - Need some Opinions

Hey,

I've managed to source some money to build myself a new PC and upgrade from my Toshiba Satellite. I have about a budget of $500 - $700, although $700 would be pushing it.

I'm working on it part by part and I'm hoping to get the best quality for the price, you will most likely see a few threads from me.

I looked around for the best CPU for my budget I started with a A10-6800k, It was a little more expensive than I would pay for a CPU, but it included the graphics that I thought would do for me. After a little more research I decided on the AMD Fx-6300 CPU, for $130 it seem's like a great little CPU and mixed with a Nvidia Geforce 650ti Boost, it looks like it can play anything on High - Ultra.

I enjoy doing Graphics and I hope to move on to things such as Coding & Video editing, these are the main reasons why I'm thinking of the AMD FX-6300 over the i3 3220.

So, in short I'm looking to buy a AMD FX-6300 for Gaming, Photoshop & probably some Video editing and Programming in the future, what's your opinion?

Also, I'm located in Australia so prices are a little on the expensive side.

Thanks for reading, hopefully I can get some helpful reply to steer me in the right direction.

    well, that would be a good build. just go with an 990 chipset motherboard and a decent aftermarket cooler like a CM Hyper 212 Evo and a PSU from Antec or Seasonic/XFX and boom... you have a very good gaming rig. you can reach 4.5 ghz+ with proper settings and you can max almost all games with good framerates.

    The 990 is a Gigabyte motherboard right?
  3. there are many 990 boards out there. MSI, Gigabyte, asrock, etc. but IMO, the gigabyte is the best. just get what the best that you can, that's a rule in upgrading.
