The only working links are for the cpu, gpu, psu, and case.

That said, I'd say with the level of gpu power you have, the vishera series is probably a little dated. Consider perhaps an i5 4670k or fx 8350 for about 100 dollars more and you would be far better off. The cpu is frankly from an older era than the gpu, that's not good.


Also keep in mind day z and mmo's in general tend to require substantially more cpu power than general games do, as such you would probably be disappointed with that cpu on newer mmos.

How is the 6300 out-dated but the 8350 isn't? They are both based off the Vishera architecture and were released at around the same time. The 6300 is weaker, but that doesn't meant it outdated.

Anyways, OP, most of your links aren't working, but by what is working I would seriously change some things.
Go for a GTX 770. Seriously. It's only ~$330 and it performs the same as the R9-280X. The 280X is NOT WORTH $500. If you want, you can even grab a GTX 780 for $500 and it will wreck the 280X at the same price.

The psu isn't very good quality. Go for the XFX 650w: http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=59616&vpn=P1650SNLB9&m...

At this budget, you would probably want to go Intel as it's stronger.

It will be helpful if we know your budget and maybe the rest of your components.

Okay so what is your budget?
Your build won't work because the processor is socket AM3+ and the motherboard is socket LGA 1155. They won't work with each other.

Budget is $800 to $1000 thanks for the advice about the GTX 770i will prob go for that because it is cheaper and preforms the same

Would it be better to change the processor or the motherboard because i heard the 6300 was good
