So I'm building a midrange budget pc for gaming and a bit of business. I found what looks to be a decent build online that's within my budget (no more than 700 dollars. A little tight, I know.). I've checked it out as best I can and all the components seem to be compatible and have generally good reviews. But before I start ordering parts I thought I should ask around and try to gather as much knowledge as I can beforehand. So yeah, any opinions or suggestions you guys could share on the build or any of the components would be much appreciated. Or even general tips and advice would be great. Thanks in advance. And here's the build.


Motherboard: Asus M5A97 AM3+


CPU: AMD FX-6300 Six Core Black Edition


RAM: Kingston Hyper X Blu 8 GB 1600MHz DDR3


Video card: EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti SSC 2GB


Hard drive: WD Blue 1 TB


Optical drive: Asus 24x DVD Burner


Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 Mid Tower


Power supply: Antec VP-450 450 Watt


OS: Windows 7 home premium 64 bit.



So that's it. Once again any opinions suggestions or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Hello,

Here's a build that is more effective but stays in the budget range:

Mainly, the PSu,GPU and RAM are better.
I assume that you live in USA.
Hope this helps^^
