  1. change the cpu to a fx thats meant for builds with gpus, if you get a apu 1866 ram and up is better. change psu to 600w evga so you can upgrade in future higher wattage parts. looks good you'll get all med sometimes high on full hd with 40fps+. You could get a r9 270 for 140$ which will allow you to play on ultra with msaa at 50fps+

    ahmedkhalifa1999 has a very good point. Those parts are much better and can hold up to the task of decent gamin at a low price.
  4. yeah thats what i meant by fx and the r9 270 which is a 7850
  5. cheap psu can only mean bad things i would suggest a higher psu price for safety and overall better quality
  6. A R9-270 because it's newer and 1600mhz ram
  7. true the newer tech is faster its just rebranded as a r9 270 so add a extra ten to that guys build. you could get a i3 which could offer similar performance and upgrade possibilities but it would be like 640$ i think

    very good james. if your overclocking you could get a 970 or 990 mobo for best overclocking experience and cooler like the hyper evo 212 is great for getting at least to 4.2-4.3 ghz. you wont be sorry getting a r9 270 because for 60$ less you can overclock it to a r9 270x(not major overclock just upping clock frequency)
