I don't see any storage mentioned. Do you have that?

Can you make a list of your current parts and budget so we can see what we are dealing with? DO you need an OS, monitor, etc?

I would hesitate to use a 8 year old PSU, honestly. Even high quality capacitors can start leaking or swelling after that long.

im just copying the stuff it lists on CPU-Z, i am using the computer as of now and i can play stuff like League of legends, skyrim with average settings but i wanted to up the entire system but all in all can the PSU still be used, my budget would be out until like next month for that power supply

with the stuff i bought it was 270 so about 300-350? i heard that the Fx-6300 stock cooler was just garbage and that the motherboard had heating problems so i bought a decent cooler with as many fan as i can fix in my haf 912

I'm confused now. Which parts do you already have? What's left that you need to buy for the remaining $350?
