Solved $750 USD First Build. Looking for advice. Tags: Intel fx budget AMD 7850 Build New 6300 Systems Last response: September 25, 2013 11:01 PM in Systems Share VirusAX September 25, 2013 8:05:41 PM Hello. I'm about to build my first gaming PC so I'm looking for some opinions to be sure the parts I picked are a good match. Any advice is helpful. Approximate Purchase Date: Mid October. Budget Range: $750 USD ~ 9750 Mexican Pesos. System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Web Surfing (Mostly YouTube videos @ 1080p), Image editing. Are you buying a monitor: Yes, but I've already decided for one and it is not included within the Budget. Parts to Upgrade: Case, Motherboard, CPU, RAM, Graphics Card, HDD and Power Supply. Do you need to buy OS: No. Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Since I live in México any parts have to be selected from this website Digitalife Location: México. Parts Preferences: I'd prefer both my CPU and GPU to be AMD, however if Intel/Nvidia are a better option I'll take them. Overclocking: Maybe in the future. SLI or Crossfire: No. Monitor Resolution:1920x1080. Additional Comments: I'm planing on playing a lot of games, mostly new ones such as Crysis 3, Metro: Last Light and possibly some ARMA III. I'm upgrading because I'm not interested in buying neither the PS4 or XB1 so PC is the logical option. Parts: Case: Coolermaster N200 - $57 (737 MXN) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 AM3+ - $65 (846 MXN) CPU: AMD FX-6300 - $131 (1694 MXN) GPU: Gigabyte Radeon 7850 2GB - $253 (3283 MXN) RAM: 2 x Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB - $89 (1149 MXN) HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue SATA3 1TB HDD - $66 (859 MXN) PSU: Corsair 500CX 500W Non-Modular Power Supply $83 (1073 MXN) Total: 744 USD. If the build is already good I'd still apreciate any confirmation. Thanks in advance!

The CX line from corsair is made with inferior capacitors. Reply to tiny voices VirusAX September 25, 2013 8:29:11 PM Oh, thanks. Do you think this one would do the job?
