Hi guys,

I'm about to upgrade my PC by buying a new Gaming PC. Looking forward to TESO and Crysis 3. However, first I would like to ask your opinion about my plan. Please note that this is a budget PC and I can't afford anything higher:

CPU - AMD FX 4300, 3800MHz, AM3+
MB - Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3, AM3+
GPU - GeForce GTX660, 2GB, 192bit
PSU - Corsair 600W
RAM - Kingston 8GB DDR3, 1600MHz , Dual channel
HDD - Western Digital 500GB

This is around 750-800 Euros. And please don't say "OMG AMD should buy Radeon". I'm an nVidia fan for life! :) 

Thanks a lot for your comments and opinions!

Replace the CPU with an i5, the rest is fine. If you really can't because of the cost, you can live with the CPU, but you won't get as good results with the FX chip. I'd actually drop the RAM to 4 gig if that means you can get a faster CPU. You can always get more RAM later, but changing the CPU will mean a different motherboard.
