My budget is $1300 with keyboard mouse and monitor. I'm looking to make a decent gaming build.

  2. You could probably do away with 8gb of ram which will be around 60$, you can get (1x8GB) so that you can upgrade to a full 32Gb if your motherboard supports it or go with (2x4GB). You might want to spend more money on your graphics card to play on ultra high like a gtx 770 or r9 270

    Dual channel is always better than Single channel. There's been multiple threads with people having huge problems gaming with FX X3XX chips and single channel RAM.

    That said you won;t be doing any "utlra-high" gaming with an R9 270X. Not even close. The FX 8350 is okay, but your graphics card (probably the most important component) is lacking greatly.
