I decided that I would like to try to build my own PC. I wanted to spend only around $800. I was hoping someone could possibly check out the build I came up with and make any suggestions that may be needed.The PC will be used for everyday things like web/email but I also play Wow so was wondering how it would hold up while playing. I'm currently using an old HP slime-line so anything must be better than what I have. Thanks in advance for your help.

1st point- You should try a quad core instead of a the FX-6100. The FX-6100 has only three execution cores and 6 threads which makes it better than a tri-core CPU but worse than most quad cores.

2nd point- Your video card will connect to the TV given you have a mini hdmi cable to hdmi cable.

3rd point- Your power supply is a bit of an overkill for this build.

P.S. Usually I would write in paragraphs but unfortunately while I was writing my reply I could not submit since the thread was being moved :lol:  I just got lazy of writing it again.

Thanks socialfox, maybe this would work?

AMD A10-Series Quad-Core A10-5800K Black Edition APU - 4MB L2 Cache, 3.8GHz, Socket FM2, Radeon HD 7660D (384 Cores), Dual Graphics Ready, DirectX 11, Fan, Unlocked

What PSU would you recommend?

Hmm, if you are buying a discrete video card then the A10 would be useless. The A10 is good for people who want both processing power and GPU power in one and don't expect too much in return. Anyways the A10 would need a new motherboard.

I had in mind perhaps a Phenom II X4 955 Black edition or 965. Anyways I would say 500 watts to 550 watts would be more than enough for your build.
