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.

perfectly decent combo.low-mid range cpu with a low-mid range gpu.
should be a well balanced build.

Are you going to need windows for this as well?

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.

AMD Athlon X4 750K Trinity 3.4GHz FM2 100W Quad-Core: $81

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

Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 120GB SSD
: $66

Corsair CX500M 500w: $55 with code EMCPHHE36 before $20 rebate

$282 before $20 rebate

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...

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.

I would probably get a 750 ti instead of a 650. Looks like good performance for around that price range for graphics cards.
