Hello, I have begun to purchase parts for an entry level gaming PC with a 300 dollar budget, peripherals not included.
http://pcpartpicker.com/user/MrRcxyt/saved/4w5g
Here is the build I currently have. As you can see I have already purchased the A10 5800k, so please do not ask for me to change that as it is pretty much impossible. But please review the build, I want to avoid bottlenecking the PC, and I want to make sure all of the connections are compatible with eachother for each piece of hardware. Thank you for reviewing my build.

Best solution

ok, no problem :D  and the cool part is that if you get ~$70-$150 and want better gaming performance, you can add a low end amd card and run it in dual graphics mode :)  and just know that this will not run games at very high settings, mostly low-medium, high with some older games, with a low end card added then probly medium-high, and very high on some older games :p  and you can overclock it.

it depends on what you are putting inside the case, if its doing to be a low end gaming or home machine then no, but if you are going to try and put in a monster card like a GTX 770 ot R9 280x then you will need a better PSU
