Will this work together?

So I'm putting together a budget build. here is my component list:

Radeon HD 7850
AMD FX – 6100
Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3
Antec 300 ATX mid tower
Corsair 8GB DDR3 (4GB x 2)
Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
600 watt PSU rated 80+
and an optical drive.

I've looked at it, and it seems to me as if it would work. my question here is this: did i overlook something? is there a cheaper way to get the same performance? This is my first build, and I don't want to screw it up.

if you can, I would highly recommend getting a 6300 at the least. the performance gap between a bulldozer and a piledrive cpu is considerable, as well as the fact that the 6300 has moderately good value.

Trade the 6100 for the 4170. Or even better get a piledriver version like dude mentioned.
Trade the 600 watt PSU for a 500W. I believe even a 430w corsair buidlers series should be enough.

Thanks, I'm going to trade out the 6100 for the 4170, this is for gaming, so 6 cores over 4 shouldn't be a big deal. the graphics card is where it's at.

on that note, I will be gaming on a single, 19in (1650x1080?) monitor, so it's not even needing to push 1080p.

but I think you guys missed my question. I was asking whether or not these parts were compatible. do any of you have experience having two or more of these parts not working together?

I would recommend the piledriver over the previous generation. They made huge improvements over the old series.

What PSU are you using?

Glad you picked a good PSU lol. Alot of people skimp on the PSU when they do their first build.
