I have been thinking of building my own desktop because all i have right now is a average apu laptop. I perfectly understand how to build one but i am not sure about the parts. I already found parts that i think would work :

Cpu: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor

Graphics card : Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 2GB Video Card

Motherboard : MSI 970A-G43 ATX AM3+ Motherboard

Cooler : Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler

Ram : Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

Case : NZXT Source 210 Elite (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case

Power : Corsair Enthusiast 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply

Storage : Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

I would like to know what i could improve in these parts to get the best gaming pc. I wont be doing any video editing or rendering, only gaming, doing homework and using the internet. I play pretty demanding games like Crysis 3 and would like at least over 30 fps on ultra or very high settings. Something important to note is that i live in CANADA and will be using newegg.ca, ncix, amazon.ca and other CANADIAN retailers to buy the parts so please do not use american stores for price comparison.

(notes for the build) : I only need 1TB of storage, i would like crossfire support for the future, i dont really care about the look of the case if it gets the job done, i would like the cpu and graphics card to be both overclockable.

Thank you

Thanks for your build but if it would be possible to lower the price down even more without losing any performance that would be even better as that is a bit pricy for my range.

As that is almost identical to the build i had, is it safe to assume that your connot get better gaming performance than this build for that price?

The motherboard and PSU from the last build are very unreliable, mastroms build is the best.

I hard the biostar MOBO is a very good budget board for AMD FX series?

Also, it gotten pretty good reviews on newegg. Alongside with the EVGA PSU, which is a big company PSU.
