Hello everyone! I'm trying to make a cheap budget build to play some games on mid-high settings.

My max resolution is 1336x768 and i plan on keeping the monitor.

heres the list of parts:


Mobo: MSI 760GM-P23 (FX) mATX (supports a max of 95w CPU's, 16gb of ddr3 1333mhz)


CPU: FX 4300 (best 95w CPU i could find for the price, wanted a Deneb but they mobo only supports 95w)

GPU: Radeon HD 6670 - think it's good for my resolution, not trying to play major titles like battlefield 3.

RAM: Mushkin 8GB 2x4GB 1333mhz

PSU: XFX 550W PRO 80+ bronze

Case: I really wasn't sure about this, I wanted something cheap that looked really cool with decent airflow, tell me what you think about it:

Azza Orion 202EVO

Since my Mobo is sata 2 I thought it made sense to reuse my current 500GB hard drive and my dvd burner to save some cash.


Total cost = $425

Tell me what you think :) 
P.S: I'm only looking to play games like Continent of the Ninth, A.v.A, Diablo III, Planet side 2 (mid settings if i must) Etc. Maybe some black light retribution.

I still prefer my case over that one, you kept the same GPU, and my mobo only supports 1333mhz ram, so paying extra for 1600mhz is useless.

I went with the 6 core, and i changed the case to a thermaltake V3 and i will be installing 2 additional Zalman ZM-F3 case fans for intake and exhaust.
