About to pull the trigger! Please last minute suggestions $500 BUILD

AMD Budget $500

If there is a similar setup and cheaper please let me know! Will only be doing very little overclocking! This is cheapest setup I can find.

I have SSD Storage I am using on my laptop that I will transfer to this rig

I will be buying this monitor, ASUS VG248QE . 120hz+ is very important in my build because I will mainly use this system for competitive CS:GO gaming.

    I already have SSD and 500GB External storage on my laptop I can use.
  3. Also you might want to consider an aftermarket CPU cooler since those bad boys can get pretty hot.
  4. Change the case.

  8. Stay far away from any bulldozer processors. Get a FX-43xx instead if you want a 4 core AMD
