  1. Good build.
    remember that you wouldn't be able to do cfx the best. I would cut out the 16gb ram and get this instead

  2. umm link is not working
  3. Also, if you are planning to overclock, you are going to need a better cooler for your CPU. A CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO should do the trick.

    If you don't really feel like overclocking, then a cheaper board and processor would be a better idea and would save you money.
  4. ok i have updated the parts list

    replaced PSU to 430watt and changed the ram to 8Gb
  5. You might want a beefier power supply for that computer, like a CX500.
  6. You could probably make due with a 430watt but it won't be able to due much overclocking. I would get a 500w or 530w instead

  7. I wouldn't go with a 430w.
    It will probably work but it's gonna push the PSU to its limits.

    Hell, even AMD doesn't suggest it.

  8. I would go 500
