Final part list, will it work?

Im putting together my new gaming pc heres what i got so far.

GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6300WMHKBOX

Patriot Viper 3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model PV38G160C9KRD

COOLER MASTER Storm Enforcer SGC-1000-KWN1 Black SECC / ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX PS2 / EPS 12V (optional ) Power Supply

Seagate Barracuda ES ST3750640NS 750GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive -Bare Drive

I only have around 600$ to spend and i already have Graphics card and optical drive that will do fine till i can afford more upgrades. And i will have to get a OS Windows 8 i guess.

I would like anyones opinions on this setup, if i should change anything or if i left somethin out.

I still need to decide on a PSU i think i need at least a 600w, would like to know some good bang for your buck PSU( i currently have a corsair 430w psu but i dont think it will do.)

Oh also i think i need some sort of CPU cooler but not sure.

And PS: for some reason my laptop will let me create threads but not reply back to them so i cant answer, but any help is greatly appreciated.


My current graphics card is a radeon hd 6850 by saphire

  1. even a GTX 680 will run on a 600 watt psu . A 7870 needs 500 watts .
    You wont be crossfiring or SLI with that mb so probably a 500 watt unit is all you will ever need .....and if you were planning on using a 7850 or GTX 660ti your current psu will work

    But if it will work for now depends on your current graphics card . Some older card use a lot of power .

    The processor ships with a cooler , it has thermal paste on it and it works perfectly well . Aftermarket coolers will let you run cooler , quieter and overclock more but they are not needed
