Are amd fx 6300 and nvidia gtx 650 good to be paired ?

I'm on a tight budget and wanted to assemble a home pc with light to medium gaming range. Will the processor and gpu be decent and good enuf for the same ? Are they compatible ?
Please suggest other components like motherboard , ram , psu , ssd for the same . Having a budget of 500 bucks.

  1. perfectly decent combo.low-mid range cpu with a low-mid range gpu.
    should be a well balanced build.
  2. Are you going to need windows for this as well?
  3. The FX-6300 is capable of support a much better video card than that so I would hardly called it "well balanced". Got just a moderate OC on mine (4.0 Ghz) and it does great with a GTX 670.
  4. AMD Athlon X4 750K Trinity 3.4GHz FM2 100W Quad-Core: $81

    Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H FM2+ A88X (Bolton D4) : $80

    Buy your RAMs from the Gigabyte QVL list -- 2x4GB should run less than $70, but a single 4GB stick for half that will work just dandy.

    Not sure what the deal is with the GTX650 (if you own it, or not). You can snag a Radeon HD7770 for $100 or so that will beat it up pretty good.

    im sure it does rite up until you play a cpu bound game. im not disputing the fact it works well with a 670 but he asked if the 650 and the 6300 were a good fit which they are...
  6. An FX-6300 is waaay too much CPU for a GTX 650.

    Period.

    I wouldn't think it would be way too much running at stock. FM2/FM2+ I just cannot recommend after the disappointment that is Kaveri. I went with i3 with H81 board, this time, just to get a better GPU.

  8. I would probably get a 750 ti instead of a 650. Looks like good performance for around that price range for graphics cards.
  9. pretty bad gpu, get at least a 650ti
