Is this a good Gaming Config and what can I do to save some bucks

Hi everyone first of all I wanna thank everyone from Toms hardware for helping me understand about gaming PC and its components. Finally I selected my Budget Gaming PC Config.

processor: AMD FX 6300.

Mobo : Asus M5a 97 R2.0 or ausus M5a 78 LM USB3 or gigabyte ga-78lmt-usb3 or gigabyte ga 970a ds3. Please let me know which one is better and future proof. I want to save some money.

Ram : Corsair Vengance DDR3 4gb. (How about Kingston Hyperx)?

PSU : Cosair Vs500.

Hard Drive: WD caviar blue 1tb.

Cabinet : Antec X1 gaming cabinet.

Disk Drive: Any cheap .

GPU : R7 260x.( Shall I go for the MSI r7 260x or Xfx R7 260x? or which brand will be best. I like MSI bcoz it is OC)

Please help me if I can make any changes in this config also help me where I can save some bucks. Please help me with the good motherboard and GPU brand. I going to build this on 2nd August. keep in mind I am on a very limited budget.

Your replies are greatly appreciated. Thank you...

  1. Best answer
    The Asus m5A97 R2.0 is the best of those motherboards. But if you can, get a 990fx chipset motherboard instead.

    Get 2 x 4gb ram instead

    The VS500 is not a certified power supply. Get a Seasonic 520, XFX550 or Antec HCG 520M instead.

    Get the MASI R7 260x
  2. Ok. thx for the reply, how about Corsair Vs 550 PSU?
  3. None of the VS are certified. Get a 500W power supply from tiers 1, 2a or 2b of http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html eg Seasonic 520, XFX550 or Antec HCG 520M
  4. Thx for the info. also I am not getting the MSI version from local dealer. He has only XFX . will this be okay? or will it make a big differnce?
  5. Where are you? Can't you use newegg, amazon, micro center, best buy or ncix?
  6. I live in India. So kind a very less options for budget gaming pc
  7. Awesome! thank you so much buddy.
  8. I'm going to Purchase r7 260x. But I'm really confused on the brand, I selected xfx, sapphire. And asus. Which one will be best. Plz let me know.
  9. I like Asus - they have great coolers.
  10. Thank you i7Baby.

    Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 Motherboard.
