500-600$ gaming PC


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)

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 ?

  1. No way.

    Start here:,3159.html

    just downgrade the gpu to what you can afford.

    OR, see if you can find a i3-2120 combo.
  2. If your going for the FX 4100 Series then atleast go for the newer one that is clocked higher the FX 4170.
  3. 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.
  5. I'm not going into the whole FX Series argument...
  6. 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.
