Hi im looking for a gaming pc under £500 that has the FX 8350 with a good cooling system as I read that it runs quite hot. It doesnt need an OS but I would like a decent graphics card inside e.g. the r7 260x and a good motherboard. I can go up to £600 but dont want to go too high as I still need a monitor etc.
Also I'D prefer a case such as the zalman z11 plus because of the number of fans.
Preferably Id want 8gb ram, 1tb hard drive and a wireless card.
Any suggestions on what I wouldnt need/ I would need to get this in budget?
Thanks to anyone who replies!

Do you need an 8350? The 8320 would be a better choice as it can achieve the same speeds as the 8320 and it is cheaper.
