This pc is meant to be a gaming pc to play games like Skyrim, Battlefield, etc.

When i say low budget i mean LOW budget, like as close to $350 as possible.

I already have a 500gb hard drive with windows on it, a DVD burner, and 6gb of memory/RAM

I plan to buy

Rosewill LINE GLOW ATX Mid Tower Computer Case,Dual USB 3.0,come with Four Fans,Support up to 7 Fans -$50

ASUS A55BM-PLUS/CSM FM2+ / FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - $75

RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply -$45

AMD 760K Richland 3.8GHz Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop Processor AD760KWOHLBOX - $90

MSI R7770-PMD1GD5 Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - $110

Any comments or advice would be great, and please dont say to increase my budget because right now i cannot go much higher. Thanks

How does the r7790 compare to the r7770? and also, will the case fit everything properly/ come with the right equipment?
