Please help!! Kindly check if below gaming rig needs any modification.

Hey Guys,

Building a new budget gaming rig. I wanted to know if my latest budget gaming rig is fine or it needs any modification (replacing parts with better ones of same category and price). Below is the same.

AMD 3.5 GHz AM3+ FX 8320 8 Core Piledriver Processor
Asus M5A97 R2.0 Motherboard
Sapphire AMD/ATI Dual-X R9 280X 3GB Graphics Card
Corsair 8GB DDR3 RAM (CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10)
Seagate 1TB Desktop Internal Sata Drive (ST1000DM003)
Cooler Master N500
Asus DRW-24D3ST DVD Burner Internal Optical Drive
Corsair VS650 650 Watt PSU

PS: My budget - Rs. 58,000 (around $900)

Thanks in advance :)

  1. you have a good build but it just need a little bit of adjustments... get a pair off 2x 4 gb ram dual channel is always faster than single 8 gb sticks.......and try to avoid the vs series from corsair they are not made for gaming pc and not good for overclocking also....i will say get a seasonic http://www.flipkart.com/seasonic-s12ii-620-watts-psu/p/itmd5xz46hjzzrax?pid=PSUD5XZ4GCGRASAY&otracker=from-search&srno=t_1&query=seasonic+620+psu&ref=a2354dd4-ac3a-4020-a4d8-5ecd2336e2bf it will cost u more than vs but its worth the price.....and u will also need an aftermarket cooler for the processor the amd stock coolers are crap .....

    yes seasonic is one of the best brands for psu.........and i would suggest coolermaster hyper 212 evo as its cheap and good .......bang for buck........it will cost around 2700/- and check the cpu cooler height before buying the hyper 212 its 159 mm in height so your case should have more than 160 mm cpu cooler clearance.......and if u dont mind then i would like to suggest u a different case one of my favorite.....nzxt phantom 410 its around 5900/- and comes with 2x 120 mm fans and 1 x140 mm fan with led it looks great and also have a mini built in fan controller.....http://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/95-phantom-410-mid-tower-case
  7. Thanks guys... i really appreciate your help on this...
