Anyway, I have a few experience on building a PC BUT, today i'll need your help on building a BUDGET GAMING PC :) ))
My first build was with an AMD chipset (a10 - 5800k) it was good, but not good enough xD

Can you guys suggest a few CPU parts that are good for gaming in 1600x900 resolution , Please :) 

Processor:
MB:
Mem:
GPU:

Help me! please :) 

my budget would only allow 250$-300$ although it is a very unrealistic budget for a gamer, please help me :( (

Just be sure to get the 2gb versions of those cards, why not just buy one of those two cards and add it to your current system (maybe with a PSU upgrade as well), just make sure you have 8GB of ram too (sweet spot for gaming nowadays)

This was the cheapest I could get, might as well upgrade your current build

my current psu is a generic 550w psu, it came free as a bonus on buying an a10 5800k here on a local shop

Thanks, i have a few spare parts in here but can a single 8gb 1600mhz ram be enough for gaming? and i have a fm2 motherboard, but i was thinking, will the radeon 7770 be enough, ive read on many threads that it is not worth the money and a lot of cheaper cards do better than it, any opinion on this? please, thank for your help

edit: Btw, i was planning on re using my a10 5800k on my next build because the athlon II x4 740 is out of stock and the local dealer here said that it wasnt a true quad core processor, i should just go buy intel quads he said. well, im also asking your opinion onhere, thank you, and sorry for a lot of questions :)

Ah, just add one of those GPUs in your current build and you should be fine for gaming, a new build isn't necessary :D

http://www.tomshardware.com/preview/preview,2-3584-15.h... as you can see it here the ahtlon ii x4 750k is quite good. but if it is out of stock, the athlon ii 4 640 looks good too. and hd 7770 is not enough to play most demanding game at high setting with smooth (>45fps). you would best get a hd 7790 or a gtx 650 ti(boost). these two card could get a high setting with nice fps (>40fps at high setting at 1600x900)
