You dont need the PCIe ethernet card. The motherboard has one port already.

You may have reasons for a sound card, but a budget one like that will not show very much improvement over the motherboard onboard audio. Motherboard audio is considerably better now than it used to be a while ago.

Other than that, the build looks good.

An R9 270X can run BF4 at around 50-60FPS on ultra at 1080p, which is more than playable.

You are the most unhelpful person SuperAdithya. I saw you yesterday, advising someone to buy extremely expensive parts, when the parts they had chosen already were more than good enough.

Why would he buy an SSD that costs the same as half of this entire build?

Intel does perform marginally better in games, but it isnt worth changing an FX 6300 for an Intel i3, which is at the same price point. FX 6300 is a good option for a budget gaming build, as it provides good price to performance for gaming, as well as video editing due to having 6 cores.

Exactly, you understand how this works :)  SSD arent considered a 'luxury' item like they used to be, now they cost about $1/GB, but there is still no point getting a really expensive SSD for a budget build like this.
