  1. I also forgot to say that I am planning to do gaming on this desktop if that was on anyone's mind
  2. looks good generally, but you can buy;
    fx 6300 for $130 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113286
    also make sure the rams are working on 1.5V and you will also need a case for sure
    you can find better hdd like that one;

  3. I would go with an i3 and a 7870 for sure. You also won't need more than a 600w PSU.
