Hello,

Every motherboard website has a list of compatible CPUs and RAM for their specific models. According to the ASUS website these are compatible. If you want to overclock ever I would suggest a 990FX chipset, but others may have other suggestions. I love AMD and think you will be happy with the FX 6300 without overclocking, it's not top of the line but performs very well for the price.

Also what is the specific model of the Nvidia card? I would like to give you some other suggestions to possibly save you some money.

Disregard the overclocking bit sorry, I just realized you said this was your first build, my bad.

I would change the motherboard to a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 and see if you can squeeze in a GTX 750 or GTX 750ti. The non TI version is priced closely with the GTX 650, I believe. You don't need that big of a power supply really either, unless you want the headroom for future upgrades.

Agreed with Logain ^^. Either way it is a good build especially for that price range. I wasn't able to find anything to save you money really. It's about as good as it's going to get. You'll be happy with it. When you get your stuff in write us on here and we can help you if you run into any problems. Be really really careful not to break pins or force things and have fun!

You should get a R9 270 instead of a R9 270X, they both perform very similarly and you can save some money too.

Also how much RAM are you going with? 8GB or 4GB. Just make sure they are dual channel (two sticks).

You system won't draw more than 400-450W. Go to coolermaster.outervision.com to find out exactly. Also make sure you get a quality power supply not a local brand like Zebronics or so. I will recommend a Corsair CX430 or the VS450.

1) Motherboard is compatible but the old chipset is not the best option, considering there are cheap AM3+ boards, id look into them.

2) 650w PSU is a bit overkill. The 650/750's dont consume that much power a 500w is plenty.

500W it is..!! :) ..And can you help me out with the motherboard..? I want a decent one which can run RAM of 1600mhz..
and does a RAM of 1330Mhz and 1600Mhz have much difference..?

Ok thanks..!! guys..I looked upon the motherboards and one of them caught my eye..
"ASRock 960GC-GS FX Motherboard"..i have never used an asrock product..does it face any issues..with the R9 270..?? and would it make much difference if I go for a 1333mhz RAM instead of 1600 mhz..??

Avoid that board. Stick with the Gigabyte one I mentioned if you are wanting a budget board. 1333 vs 1600 isn't going to give any noticeable difference with an FX.
