Thoughts on my first $600 Gaming Desktop PC build?

I am going to build a Gaming Desktop PC soon, I'm given a excellent Part List by ScrewySqrl.

Thoughts on it? (It's a PC for gaming only, like BF4 on Ultra Settings)

CPU AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core $109.99
Motherboard ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 ATX AM3+ $64.99
Memory GeIL EVO Veloce Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 $62.99
Storage Hitachi Ultrastar 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM $46.44
Video Card Zotac GeForce GTX 760 2GB $234.99
Case Rosewill Galaxy-01 ATX Mid Tower $29.99
Power Supply Corsair 430W ATX12V $19.99
Optical Drive LG GH24NSB0 DVD/CD Writer $15.99

Total: $585.37

Thank you for your time. :)

  1. looks really good, Any 600 dollar build that can fit in an FX 6300 and a GTX 760 is a winner in my book
  2. I would still look for a better PSU than the 430W corsair, it's the runt of the bunch.
    Generally XFX Core Pro 550W ~$60
    EVGA 500B ~$45
  3. the 430W CX got a decent review, everything is quality except for those chinese capacitors, but it should honestly be no problem with that rig

    but I've heard good things about that EVGA so if you can spare the money go for it

    What about the Corsair CX 500W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ?
  5. 500W is also enough but it has the same issues as the 430W
  6. Don't get the AMD FX-6300. Performance wise, its pretty terrible compared to AMD FX-8350. The price is higher ~$200 but not as much as the FX-9590. If you are willing to spend a little more, its a much better processor.
  7. FX-8320 is the way to go if you want the 8 core ( $139 ), the FX-8350 ( close to $200 ) is just a higher clocked FX-8320.
    So in most cases you would just be spending an extra money between the two for nothing.
