Hey guys ! So im going to build my second rig which i will use it for gaming and this build was meant to handle some demanding game (at least on medium setting) like ac black flag , battlefield 4 , watch dogs , gta V , etc
I lived in Indonesia (of course not going to order from newegg or amazon) , and my budget was about 5.500.000 IDR (around 550$)
And these built will be upgraded by 2015's new year so im looking built that will last a year..
And im thinking of overclocking too

And here's the thing i've already got :
-Monitor (1600x900)
-OS (Windows 7 64-Bit)
-RAM (2x4GB)
-Peripherals (Key & Mouse)
-DVD Drive
-HDD (1tb)
-PSU (500w)

So im thinking of these (the price has been converted to my country's price , so it might different in the actual $ price) :

CPU : AMD FX-6300 (130$)
VGA : Sapphire HD 7850 OC Version 2Gb (240$)
Motherboard : Asus M5A97 R2.0 (126$)
CPU Fan : Cooler Master Hyper 212X (45$)
Speaker (yes , speaker !) : Still dont know but the budget around (45$)

is that nope or dope build ? i've been diging many forum threads and still cant get a clear answer !!
thankyou in advance , tom's hardware been helping me much back then ! :D 
*sorry for my bad english

Best solution

Looks good. You should check the prices on the 7870, GHz Edition and XT if available. Sometimes they go for the same price as the 7850 and are quite a bit more powerful. I've always trusted Logitech speakers but I also haven't used speakers in years, I'm a headset guy now.
