$700 Budget Gaming PC. Need Build Advice.

Hey guys. I have a rough online of parts that I have compiled together and was hoping some people could give me some guidance on better alternatives or tell me if these parts are compatible or not. Any and all suggestions are welcome.

Thank you!

    Here's a build with AMD parts, if you're open to that option. FX8350 with a 270x. It's a nice little system that is within your budget I hope.

    Personally I'm trying to stay away from AMD because my friends have had a mess of problems with them. Also the build even without the operating system and cpu cooler is above my budget.
  3. Unless you want a DUO core then your gonna want AMD. This is such a small budget with an OS that leaves about $600.

    There is nothing wrong with going AMD, besides you could probably get a better mobo and an overclockable cpu like an fx6300 and still be under budget
