^ I like it, but that PSU will not give a good upgrade path. The i3 would be better for gaming, but for everyday use, I would prefer the FX-6300 for multi-tasking. Other than that, the LGA1150 is definitely a better upgrade path.
* Mobo is much better, IMHO.
* RAM is good and runs at stock voltage of 1.5v @ 1600 mHz and CAS 9 timings!
* 1 TB HD for all of your needs (4x your selection for only about $20 more)
* Good Micro ATX case and a bit cheaper/smaller than the BitFenix case.
* Appropriately sized PSU (could upgrade to 500w for ~$10-15 more).
Only if your going to go nuts on the OC on the FX 6300. I have several on pretty demanding systems and no issues at all. The CX 500 would be worth the upgrade, but just trying to fit it all in the budget
That Unlocked Pentium put the nail in the coffin of my Athlon 760K @5GHz...
I think it's Intels push to kill the budget AMD chips, IMHO. The only issue is finding a decent Mobo to OC it with that doesn't go north of $100. That would be the killer budget setup, IMHO (unlocked Pentium w/$60-80 OC'ing Mobo).
Thanks for the feedback coming from xbox 360 I needed some guidance and you guys did thanks so much and belive it or not I got all this from selling my games
NICE! Welcome to the PC side of things. I'm pretty sure you will love the flexibility of the PC. Watch out for the Steam sales, because when you see games going for <$1 to $20 you will have to fight the urge NOT to buy As a side note, you can still use controllers on PC's with Windows, like the Xbox 360 ones, so you can still have/use those controllers on games that support controllers.
