Hello all,

I will be building a new AMD-base gaming PC starting next month and would like some suggestions.

P.S. This will be my first time.


CPU: AMD FX- 8320 Vishera 3.5GHz ~ $150
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo ~$35
GPU: R9 270x (Gigabyte or Asus) ~$200
Motherboard: AsRock 990fx Extreme 3 ~$100
Memory: G.Skill low voltage series 2x4 8gb ~$80
Storage: Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB ~$70
Power Supply:Need suggestions (Will Crossfire in the future) ~$50-100
Case: NZXT Source 210 Elite $50
Optical Drive: Samsung 24x DVD Burner SATA Model SH-224DB/RSBS ~$20

Will there be any compatibility issues?

Could you suggest something better a.k.a bang for your bucks?

I do not plan to overclock.

Budget: ~$800-850

Once again, thanks.

Might look at reg voltage DRAM (1.5) a number of AMD mobos have problems with LV sticks

Thank you,

I will look around for reg voltage DRAM.

What about the power supply? I am stuck as to what PSU to buy.

I do plan to crossfire in the near future.

Best solution
