Budget System (400 euro)

Hallo,
This is going to be my first build. The price of all the parts should be around 400 euro (preferably from a retailer that ships to Belgium). I don't need a HDD/DVD reader and the OS. This setup is going to be used for gaming at 1080p ( nothing fancy, i can live with playing games on medium settings). I was thinking of the R7 260X as the GPU and the AMD FX-6300 as the CPU. Thanks for the help in advance.

    Here's a build, got in an R7 265 if you're willing to go a bit over budget, otherwise go with a 260X. I do believe caseking in Germany ships to Belgium.

    Isn't the 550W psu a bit of an overkill? I was thinking of getting the Corsair CX430m ( a 430W psu)
  3. A good 550w psu gives you room to improve your system if you want to upgrade down the road. It saves you from purchasing a 430w unit now and then having to buy a more powerful unit later.
