What is the best build you can make using an AMD 6300 and under $700. Can you include a wireless card for wifi.
I would like to be able to play games like bf4 on highest settings and get 50-60fps.

Windows 8 is better performance wise for gaming.

You can get many different distro's of Linux on the web or ordered from there site on a USB or CD/DVD.

It's better to use a direct connection for gaming, but if you have to, I would suggest a PCi card.

Windows in general is pretty straight forward to install. Make sure to get a 64bit OS and just pop the CD/DVD into your drive. It should then ask you to press any key to boot from CD, install options will be granted from there along with partition options all wrapped in a pretty good DUI.

This adapter should work just fine, and it is pretty good quality so you shouldn't have issues, do the usual driver updates after any Windows install to get your PC to the security level etc. it needs to be at.

Ok cool! Ill use that for my wifi. So if i were to use the build of the computer mentioned above, do i have to worry about any kind of overheating? Should i buy and install extra fans or will the ones that come with the case mentioned be enough?

Depends on the temps of where you live, but really I'd never say no to extra fans as they keeps proper air flow going through your rig.

Will you need them, eh, most likely not.

Should you get them, yes, even if you don't plan to OC anything I would recommend as much air flow as possible just because you want your PC running as efficient as possible temperature wise.

Any recommendations for good fans? And do you agree with the rig mentioned above?

i got a couple more questions. Do i need a sound card for AMD Radeon's build? Also should i get a cpu cooler? And am i able to get the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard instead of the MSI one from Radeon's build and still have everthing from Radeons build compatable? And is there any video cards that are better but still under 200 than the gigabyte r7 260x? And will i be able to use an hdmi to a moniter with this build? thanks

Need a sound card, no, not unless you are a audiophile :D 

Get a CPU cooler like a CoolerMaster EVO if needed for OC'ing, otherwise the stock cooler will get you to nearly 4Ghz on air.

Yeah, you could get that board, don't see why not.

Could get this for a little more;

Video Card: PNY GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card ($236.98 @ Amazon)

Or I guess an R9 270x for $10 cheaper then the one above. Right now I suggest GeForce for almost anything over $180 ish

I get a little flak for that though xD

Texel rate is better on the 760, pixel rate is better on the R9 270x, I'd still go 760 though.
