First time Pc builder, looking for opinions on this build ive assembled. Ive been editing it and switching out parts now for a couple months. If you have something to add or just want to say something don't hesitate in answering, I need other opinions because I'm so inexperienced at this.
Are my eyes just tired or is there no CPU on the list?
You definitely need a CPU and a decent one for a gaming build. For CPU you put a motherboard which is something you need as well but the CPU is one of the most important parts you need.
Anyways for gaming alone I would recommend a phenom II X4 955/965 Black edition, with the black edition you can overclock it to attain much a much faster CPU compared to stock clocks. However you could also go for the new FX-6300. However as far as budget concerns go for the Phenom if you are looking to save a lot of money. Might be worthwhile for an Intel build but that's fine if you can't switch your parts. If you do go for the FX-6300 you may run into an issue if you grab an old board from an old batch of that motherboard, you will need to update the bios for the FX CPU to be recognized.
I would highly not urge you to get the FX-6100, just get the Phenom 955 which costs less and does not need a bios update. The FX-6300 is only $20 more dollars than the 6100 but performs much better. So my opinion is avoid the FX-6100, go for the FX-6300 if you want better performance or the Phenom if you are looking for price and performance.
Edit: The Fx-6100 is 119.99 on newegg.com and the 6300 is 139.99
In addition, the FX-6100 is a bit different than the phenom, it has only 3 execution cores but 6 threads whereas the phenom has 4 cores and 4 threads.
