Hey guys, I don't know much about pc parts and all that so I need your help please. I don't have really big budget but here is the thing. Now I have Intel core 2 duo 2.66 ghz 4 gb ram and I bought 1 year ago GIgabyte Hd 7750 OC. And I'm thinking about upgrading. So I will get new mobo,cpu,psu,ram and case. About cpu I will get amd fx 6300, I know that intel cpu-s are better but this one is cheaper then i3 and I saw some banchmarks and in some cases it's similar to i5 if I'm not wrong, after all it is hexacore 3.5 ghz cpu. I won't overclock it just because I hate it :) . About mobo I was thinking about Asus sAM3+ M5A97 LE R2.0, I saw somewhere that I can put fx 6300 on it and that will work good, but still I want to ask: Can I put fx 6300 on Asus sAM3+ M5A97 LE R2.0?. If I can that would be good because I'm not too sure because I understand more mobos that support intel cpus because it's more simple. So ram memory I want 8 gb ram and I found Kingston 8GB 1600MHz CL10 DIMM DDR3 memory HyperX Fury Red Series, It is cheap and it's 1600 mhz so can you please tell me is it good? I guess I can put it on Asus sAM3+ M5A97 LE R2.0
:) . About psu I heard that Corsair is a good brand and I found 1 cheap psu: CORSAIR 550W VS550, I think that 550W is more than enough for this setup, but tell me is it good? I know that cheap psu-s are not good but It's corsair so I don't know :) . I need a good case because I don't want any overheating so I will get Zalman z11 plus, it is good looking and it comes with 5 fans I think. So I just want to ask you after all will this all work together : fx 6300,Asus sAM3+ M5A97 LE R2.0,CORSAIR 550W VS550,Kingston 8GB 1600MHz CL10 DIMM, hd 7750 oc. All that in zalman z11 plus. And if someone tested this fx 6300 in games with same or similar gpu can you tell me how much fps can I get? Thank you very much.

Hi,

AMD processors are great for gamers in a budget, the AMD FX6300 is definitely one of the top choices for gaming, most i5 are better, but if you don't want to spend more money, stick with the AMD, it's enough for what you plan to do.

The CPU and Motherboard are 100% compatible, you shouldn't have any problem with that at all.

About the Power Supply, 550W is enough I think, I wasn't able to find ratings about the one you specify, but Corsair is Corsair. Still, try to see the rating (Bronze, Gold or none).

Kingston is a great brand for any type of memory, those 8GB are on 1 stick or 2 sticks in 2x4GB? If you'll only buy 1 stick of 8GB, please consider buying another one in the future, because RAM sticks work best in pairs. If you are planning to buy 2x4GB sticks, take in consideration you won't be able to use the max RAM provided by the motherboard. 8GB is more than enough for now, but if you are planning to upgrade in the future, consider 1 8GB stick for now and then upgrade with another one.

AMD graphics cards are great, and the Radeon HD 7750 doesn't break the rule. But AMD took the HD series and sort of remade them, try to take a look at the R7 or R9 series and see if there's anything similar to the HD 7750.

Everything perfect with the Case.

I know I might have confused you a bit with all the alternatives I have presented. What you have in mind will theoretically work just fine, but it's never too much to try and find something better for the same price. ;) 

About the performance, with that CPU and GPU you'll do fine with current games. Just to have an idea, except to play Battlefield 4 in High settings in smooth 30-40fps, but you'll probably won't be able to play it in Ultram settings, as you'll constantly be getting lower than 24 fps.

Hope I was helpful. Good luck with your upgrade.
