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 Vs550.

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

For the GPU, I've not had a good experience with XFX's customer service, not sure about MSI though.

Asus M5a 97 R2.0
8GB 1600/9 GSkill Snipers
Look at the Asus CU model of the 260X (OCs very well, and oft time the pre OCed cards have little to no headroom to go higher)
