    For gaming and overall, the FX-6300 is better, the FX-6100 is a from an older architecture.
    Also for gaming you just need 8GB of ram, what you need is a much better card, like the 7850.
    So i made some changes : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zM6K

  6. 8gb is easily enough, even for us 2500k/3570k and 580/6970/7870/660ti and up folks, games use the ultra fast ddr5 built in to the video graphics card, also with an SSD which future amd/nvida is going to assume we have, system ram wont make a difference as long as is larger than the vram.

    most important you dont need that sound card, the video card and mobo will easily handle hd audio and unless your going to be hooking up to a $800+ full home theater system(or 2 speakers and a sub) your NEVER going to hear the differnce. so minues 65$

    the rest are over a months period on techbargains.com lookin for the best deal.

    you can find that cpu/mobo combo for about $10 less... ive seen the 212 evo for sale at $10 less.... you only need 8gb of 1600 capable ram and thats $30 less.... cases can be found for $35-45 and thast $30 less....
    the power supply is a little weak so a decent 500w is going to be maybe $10 more at the most...


    65-10-10-30+10=105 less

    that 6770 sucks, get a 7850, about twice as fast for $139
    http://www.techbargains.com/news_displayItem.cfm/332691

    so -66

    and a 1080p monitor for $100....
    http://www.techbargains.com/news_displayItem.cfm/332405

    and you have a solid gaming system at plus $34
