Hi!

I'm new to computers and I'm trying to build an affordable PC for gaming (500-600$)
I found that combo on newegg (I suppose all the parts are compatible)
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.865226

CPU......... : AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor FD4100WMGUSBX

MB.......: GIGABYTE GA-880GM-USB3L AM3+ AMD 880G USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

RAM....... : G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

CASE......: Rosewill FBM-01 Dual Fans MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Power Supply...... : COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS500-PCARD3-US 500W ATX12V v2.3 Power Supply

HDD..... : Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive CD.... : LITE-ON DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 - OEM FAN..... : Linkworld Electronic LLC FAN-9 90mm Case Fan - OEM

Only a graphic card seems to be missing... I was thinking about that one :

Video Card....... : XFX Double D HD-685X-ZDFC Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

What do you guys think about this build ? Would that video card fit with the rest of the build ?

If your going for the FX 4100 Series then atleast go for the newer one that is clocked higher the FX 4170.

That should work for you. The video card has a 6+2 pin connector and the PSU has only a 6 pin connector but you should get a cable adaptor with the card.

The 4170 still get's owned by a stock i3-2100.

GEEZ! It's a $400 combo deal. What's wrong with a guy on a budget trying to stay in his budget?
Sure, get an I3 and MB and the price bumps a little. Then it's 'for only a few $$ more you can get this faster video card.....and on and on. Someone in here build him an Intel rig for the same price and sell him on that.
