  1. Great build. That is nearly identical to a recent build I just put together.
    You may want to consider upgrading the processor at this budget:

    It's good, but I would try to fit more into your budget.

    FX 6300 - Excellent CPU, great oc'ing potential in the future. The L3 cache will help in gaming.
    Radeon 7850. Clearly better
    CX 430m - 430 watts should be enough, and it's fairly reliable.
    the mobo should work fine.
    the ram is cheaper and faster
    the case has decent reviews.
    the HDD is the same but cheaper (and both from amazon...)

    Overall, it will work much faster, at the same price.
