Best Value for Money (budget) PC for Gaming

Hello All,

Here is what I have shortlisted:

CPU:................AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($119.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard:...ASRock 970 Extreme 4 Motherboard
Memory:..........Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($77.99 @ Newegg)
HDD:................Samsung 840 Series 120 GB SSD Internal Hard Disk
VideoCard:.......Asus NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 2 GB DDR3 Graphics Card
Cabinet:...........Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus Mid Tower Cabinet
PSU:.................Corsair CMPSU-GS600W 600 Watts PSU
RAM:................Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4 GB (2 x 4 GB) PC RAM
Optical Drive:....LG GH24NS71/GH24NS72/GH24NS95 Internal Optical Drive

My main usage will be

1) Low to moderate gaming (Far Cry 3 / Crysis 3)
2) Moderate photoshop-ing
3) Frequent HD movie screening :).

Please suggest if I should upgrade or degrade any component?

I am planning to use my external HDD for extra storage.

Thanks for your help.

  1. No. The GT 640 is too weak for gaming.
    What is your budget?
    Where are you buying from?

    Think I'd try going at least a little more towards a 7850 or so for the GPU, the Asus is $144 at the Egg

    Though I haven't capped my budget but I want best value for money.
    I am buying from Flipkart.com (India)
