300 dollar gaming PC build.

Hello, I have begun to purchase parts for an entry level gaming PC with a 300 dollar budget, peripherals not included.

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.

    Thank you so much, I belive I will order the parts that you have selected for me.
  4. 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.
  5. Guys, I wanna know if this pc is good. I am new to custom built's.
    Thanks

  7. I assume you use the PC for HTPC, because it is not good for games.
    This one for $260, plus RAM and the fan, it is still lot more cheaper than that one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1715790
    Or this one for $380 http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1705017
  8. Guys I wanna know if we have to get an extra powersupply if the case already has one.

    Case:
    Cougar Solution RSB400 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case w/400W Power Supply

    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
