So I'm putting together a budget build. here is my component list:
Radeon HD 7850
AMD FX – 6100
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.
