This build will be pretty much exclusively for fast paced fps games, with a small amount of Internet use. Games include tf2, l4d2, payday1+2 and some more demanding on graphics.

CPU: AMD fx-6300 €98.40
MB: ?
GPU: GeForce gtx760 2gb €230.88
RAM: Corsair vengeance 8gb(2x4) DDR3 1600 cl9 €74.67
HD: wd blue 1tb €51.27
POWER: seasonic s12ii 620w €64.47
MONITOR: benQ rl2445hm €179
CASE: corsair carbide 300r windowed €83.19
Total: 780.88
All off hardwareversand.de, without reduction or delivery

So as you can see I need a motherboard and I really need it to be in the 70-80€ range if possible
Do I need a CPU cooler?
Will this be a loud unit?
Will I need extra fans?
I will be buying an ssd to go with this build pretty soon, just can't afford it right now.

Also I need a wireless card I think, I assume I need it to be able to connect to wifi?
And do I need a sound card to use a mic?

I'd really appreciate any help you could give me, especially if it will reduce the price. Things I'm pretty decided on getting are monitor and power supply but still open to suggestions. Thanks.

An asrock pro am3+ socket is 60-80
No you dont NEED a cpu cooler, the aftermarket ones are just more silent and if u want to Overclock yes u do need one, its about 20 bucks anyways
Loud unit? Dont think so the "r" series from corsair has good cooling if u feel its too loud get bigger case fans or more fans and reduce the speed of each one
That is up to how u set up your build, u might need more air intake and then yes u will need more fans
Yes its ok to get wifi, web by cable is faster but i got a USB stick on my desktop that gives me wifi capabilities
No u dont need a sound card
good build

for the motherboard check this:

i see you are want a quiet system so you should change to WD green series it is more quiet

for extra fans and CPU cooler will you going to overclock your CPU ?

if the answer is yes you have to get a CPU cooler and one more thing more extra fans mean more noise (of course the noise level depend on the fans you choose)

the last thing (Wi-Fi) it will be a separate purchase.

i hope that would help !!

look AMD processors have more cores but it gives more heat than intel CPUs and intel CPUs have more technologies that will help you to increase your PC performance such as intel turbo boost technology.
