Hi, I want to buy a CPU/mainboard/RAM/gpu/PSU/hdd/diskdrive and I have the other basic parts.My budget is 600$ and my purpose would be serious gaming in singleplayer only.I love shooter action games. To mention few ...
Halflife 2 trilogy and black mesa
However I can only manage 400$ now and the other 200$ a month later. I am willing to wait but not to compromise.....especially on the CPU/GPU and even willing to slash out the HDD/disk drive at present if the total budget is less but can't go a penny up nor manage the whole money now.
So how AND WHAT should I go for ?

Motherboard: MSI 760GM-P34(FX) Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($59.98 @ Outlet PC)

If you cant wait i think the fx-6300 has integrated graphics? so drop the gpu and use them.
Yes I am willing to wait but as I said I do not need a chassis and can even strike out the HDD and disk drive and use the old ones for few months.I was hoping if I could get an hand on i5 3450 and HD 7850 BY ANY means .No offense on the 6300 - its a fine class processer. But all my friends here have i5 and they are performing quite well.I do have a soft spot for i5s and i7s too.
