I am from India, so please refer to prices from this site flipkart.com

This is what i have decided to build as a gaming PC for myself:

CPU -AMD FX-6300
CASE- Antex GX700
FAN - CM Hyper 212 Evo
RAM - any 2x4GB 1600 ram
HDD - WD 1tb 7200rpm
PSU - S12II 620W
MOBO- M5A97 Evo R2.0 [Will this board let me overclock my CPU and GPU?]
GPU- 7870XT / thinking of 7950 because of BF4 3gb VRAM recommended specs but its 100$ expensive in india ? :( 


Will this build be able to run games like Watch Dogs / AC 4 / GTA5 if announced? / BF4 at ultra settings on 1080p?

I am planning to play games on 1080p on this rig for about 2 years on atleast high settings! Will it last me that long ?

It will last you 2 years on high for sure. Nice choice on the 7870 XT. It performs almost the same as a 7950 and is cheaper I assume!

Thanks for the input!

Just want to confirm if that mobo will let me overclock my Cpu/Gpu!

This is my first build so I want to be 100% sure! Just need a few more input from other people about the graphics card

The 990fx boards are better for overclocking.

Its a good sensible build . I would just buy the FX 6300 and overclock to the higher speed . They are identical bits of silicon .

That 970 board is an excellent overclocker , and the only way to get better would be to pay nearly twice as much and that would only be a small gain

I just realised that 6350 is not available in my country, so yeah i have to go with 6300!

Also the BF4 Recommended specs say 3GB of VRAM, so getting a 7950 rather than a 7870XT a better option given that the 7950 is 100$ expensive than 7870XT in india! [also it comes without free games :(  ]

I don't know much about india, but I prefer to wait for 7950. When the next gen AMD cards come out, guess where the overstocked HD 7900 series go? If you can wait til mid October that is. 6300 is good to me, but you need a 8320 if you want to do crossfire in future, which saves you money.
