$400 Budget Build. How does it look?

This is my first build. I'm on a budget and don't have a lot of money. I wanted something that could play some non-graphically intensive games at 1080p and multitask on windows with various applications. I don't need an disk drive and i'm transferring my old hard drive over.

CPU $130 [A10-6800k]

RAM $80 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231460&Tpk=N82E16820231460

MOTHERBOARD $73 [MSI A88X-G41]

HEATSINK $35 [Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO]

CASE $50 [COUGAR ATX Mid Tower N82E16811553003]

POWER SUPPLY $40 [500W EVGA]


Will this work? Is the power supply good enough? Thoughts?

  1. Where is your GPU? I don't see it in your list
  2. The GPU is integrated into the A10. This would be a good starter build but you will want to drop in a discreet graphics card whenever possible.
  3. Also I'm guessing you already have windows? and your build is missing a hard drive too.

    Yes I do, i'm hoping I can bring my 1TB hard drive over from my other computer.

    I could always crossfire it in the future I suppose. Do you think the mobo is good for future upgrades?
