Hello I was wondering if you could help me figure out if I would be able to play games like LoL and diablo 3 with +80 fps while browsing, recording, streaming, etc. on another screen simultaneously?

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.50 GHz Six-Core AM3(No OC)
CPU Cooler: Asetek 510LC 120mm Liquid Cooling CPU Cooler
Motherboard: GIGABYTE 970A-DS3P AMD 970 ATX
RAM: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3 G.SKILL Ripjaws X
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB 16X
Power Supply: 600 Watts - Corsair CX600 600W 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Memory: 1TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 32MB Cache 7200RPM HDD
Monitor: 22" Widescreen 1920x1080 LG 22M34D-B 5ms LED Backlight, D-Sub, DVI-D & Analog RGB( Two of these)

Current Cost: $1037

I don't want to have to spend over $1060, so please, if you have a suggestion, don't go overboard with the price. I just want to know if this will be enough to handle what I want to do, I don't want to have to restart the whole build. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Yes that build will work. Personally though I would do something like this overall a much stronger build and then get a second monitor later. It is up to you though.

I don't know about 80+ fps, but it will play smoothly until you load up the CPU with too many tasks. And what is with this 80+ fps? I'll bet your monitor only has a 60 HZ vertical refresh rate.

You probably want to use NVidia's Shadowplay which has minimal impact on performance.

I really don't understand the desire to play a video game while browsing at the same time, but it's your build.

It's your build though so I'll see what I can come up with.

Does your BUDGET include Windows or not?

I didn't see a mention in your first post so I didn't want to assume. While I wait, some minor points:
a) I strongly recommend an i5-4440 or similar in your build to prevent CPU bottlenecks.

b) Liquid Cooling isn't really necessary. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is probably the best value. You can't overclock the i5-4440 but it would still be ahead of an overclocked FX-6300.

c) LoL and Diablo 3 are very lightweight games so your FX-6300 should be fine for these games. Here's a benchmark:

At this budget, I'd still prefer to see an i5-4440 but it's your choice.
