Budget gaming pc

So, i am a "noob" that wants a computer that can handle games like GW2, Skyrim, League of Legends, etc... now i found out that if i get the components for a computer and put them together yourself the price will be much lower than if you would buy it from a store in a box :P¨

So ive been doing research and stuff and came up with this:

processor: AMD A10-5800k quadcore 3.8 GHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-f2a85x-up4
RAM: G.skill Ares 8gb (2x4g)
HDD: Seagate barracuda 1TB 7200 rpm SATA 6GB/s
Case: Rosewill R519-BK Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ 500W Power Supply
Cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
Graphics card: Sapphire radeon HD 6670 1GB

from Newegg, i can buy all this for 554 dollars which equals about 415 euros.
Still, i would like to ask some "pros" that know much about computers and computer builds if this really is worth it.
Here is the link for my shopping cart.

Please give me some feedback and advise on this before i buy it.
Thanks.

  1. oh, yes, i forgot one thing.
    The case and power supply is in a bundle, but i do not know if the case will fit my motherboard correctly, incase, can you help me find a better one that my motherboard would fit well into.
  2. what is the maximum that you can spend?
  3. lies around the 550$/420€ mark. preferably a few euros cheaper
  4. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/upIJ this will blow that other computer out of the water but if you could spend about $610 i could make this thing so much better
  5. thanks for that build, but i wouldnt the graphics be better if i crossfire the my cpus integrated graphics with the radeon hd 6670? show me the 610 build too, i can just loan 50 euros from my parents ^^
    thank you for answering :D
  6. Borrow 50 euros*
  7. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/upLH for $200 you cannot beat a 660Ti at that price and it is way more powerful that a 6670 crossfire
  8. Now THATS a computer :D now the problem is that the parts are from different sites which makes everything more complicated.
    Ill try and get those parts together only from newegg and see what happens :)
    Thank you for the help

    would this build be viable, does the motherboard support the video card?
    Sorry for asking so many questions but i want to be really sure before wasting my money ^^

    ok i made a small change that video card from another site costs $260 but with http://pcpartpicker.com/p/upWa it is better because i added the 7870 which is cheaper than $260 and about 2-5fps slower also everything works together and who said that it was wasting it's more of an experience
  14. well, now i have been pondering between different builds and finally got everything together

    CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965
    GPU: ASUS Radeon HD 7850 2GB
    HDD: SEAGATE Barracuda 7200 rpm 1TB
    PSU: Corsair Builder 600 watt 80+
    Mobo: ASUS M5A78L/USB3 Socket AM3+
    Case: CM Elite 310 Mid Tower
    Memory: KINGSTON HyperX 8GB 2x4 DDR3, i think it had 1600 speed...

    So thats about it. Ill close this thing now cause i already ordered the computer :)
