I am not sure though if the FX-6300 will be sufficient. I think it's way enough but not taking risks, so I'd like you guys' help to help me figure this out


P.S.: Those prices are for Canada

  1. There should not be a bottleneck
  2. You don't have a power supply though
  3. The FX-6300 should be good enough for the GTX 760 , if you went with a higher model video card then you would need a better CPU.
  4. Best answer
    For 1000$ you should have a better processor then that and unless he really wants it an ssd isnt going to add to game preformance at all just load times. I would suggest dropping the ssd and getting a better cpu like an i5 4670 and a h87 mobo
