    That's a decent build, I'd recommend swapping the 4350 with a 6300 though, it's good enough to play new games coming out at high-very high settings at 1080p

    Modified it a little :D

  2. The 6300 is only about $10 more and you get 2 more physical cores which would come handy in the future
  3. Is the 6300 that much better even If the 4350 is at 4.2ghz
  4. In threaded applications its better due to its additional cores, in older games where less threads are used the 4350 is better
  5. Oh ok so that computer should perform pretty well? As I do plan to upgrade later
  6. Yep it'll do pretty well :D
  7. Do I need any adapters like 4 pin to moles for example?
  8. For the GPU? the card should come with some though your PSU should have the right connectors already
  9. Ok thanks
  10. Ok thanks
