The things that are in the custom section are things that I already own.


What do you think?
Are there any parts that I could improve while still maintaining my budget?
How will it perform on games?


Thanks!
Dan.

This will run the game maxed out at around 55 - 60 fps.

Cut down a bit on HDD space but 500GB is plenty for files/games/music and what not while that brand of SSD's is one of the best on the market and load up times for game (if you put any on the SSD) Will be ALOT quicker along with windows boot up times. opening programs and stuff will be snappier and quicker too. Also the FX-6300 is good for gaming you still have 6 cores only 2 less than the 8320 so youll still be good gaming wise dont worry about that all in all this will be a more rounded gaming system. Youll have an SSD and a Mantle graphics card which will help performance in future games that utilize it.
