Hey all :hello:  , I'm on a tight budget. I don't really want to go over the price i'm already at, $525

So here's what i have. [ √ means i have bought it already ]

FX 6100 (Bought $109 w/ -$70 on MOBO) $109 √
ASRock 970DE3/U3S3 (Deal with CPU) $0 √
500GB WD Blue $65 √
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7750 1GB $95
Silencer MK III 500W w/ Free DVD burner $70
G.SKILL (2x 4GB) 8GB RAM $25
Windows 7 Home OEM $100
Rosewill Case w/ 3 Fans $50

I really don't feel like spending more money than i need. Any better parts for less money? (Need to buy everything but HDD, CPU, and MOBO)
Got all prices from Newegg.com

Can this pc handle games like
LoL, Dota2, Diablo 3, Call of Duty?

Also, i like to video render, should i get a Cooler Master 212 EVO?
I've never been experienced with OverClocking so i don't plan to, but it does seem like a good idea. I'm just worried i'll mess things up.
Lastly, i really wanted an SSD, but they're so expensive and i don't have the money. Is it really worth investing in one?

Any thoughts or opinions are appreciated, thanks! :)

I want to game as well as record possibly.
Games like Leauge Of Legends, DotA 2, Call of Duty, Border Lands.

I video render as well, i thought the 6 cores may come in handy for that.
I have a 1080p monitor, but i'm happy playing in lower resolutions if needed.

this build has more power than the other build but is costly for your budget.

i would stick with the first build or torrent win7/8 and go for second build

for sure it will play all those games on high(the first one) besides BL2(maybe)

the A10 is still at quad core so it isnt much of a let down and the FX *1** series are not that great go for the FX *3** series which is more power efficient and just stronger overall
