I'm thinking of building a system within the next 2 months, and I am wondering whether it is good enough to run games at high to max for 2-3 years and then at medium for the next 2. I would also like to know if my ram is compatible with my mobo and CPU. Any help is appreciated! this is my spec at the moment
CPU: Fx-6300 w/ Hyper evo 212
Mobo: asus m5a99x evo r2.0
GPU: Gigabyte Radeon r9 280x
Ram: G.skill ares 8gb 2133 MHz (2x4gb)
Storage: Seagate barracuda 1tb and a Kingston ssd now 120gb ssd
Case: Corsair carbide 300r w/ 1 extra arctic cooling f14 fan
PSU: Corsair RM750 modular
Peripherals: Aoc i2367fh 23.0" monitor
Edimax PCI-e wireless adaptor
Samsung DVD rewriter
Cooler master CM storm QuickFire tk keyboard
Cooler master CM storm xornet mouse.

the ram is compatible however you really don't need more than 1600mhz as you will notice minimal to zero difference so save some money for a better cpu or gpu and as for running games for the next few years I highly doubt the itll run at high settings in 3 years but the newer games will have better graphics anyway so even on low I would like to think the graphics will be great

Thanks, what 1600 MHz ram do you recommend? And as for the Savings, shall I upgrade to an fx 8350/8320?

the cheapest 8gb module you can get really and yeah those cpu's will be an improvement
the way I have done it Is cheapest board cheapest hdd cheapest dvd drive cheapest everything exept for cpu and gpu
which in my build is a 4770k and a gtx 780 ti ive had allsorts of ram and never noticed better performance between £200 gskill stuff and generic corsair stuff also your board seems overkill here is a cheaper alternative with no sacrafices Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 - 1.0
