hey hello

Basically im aiming for an AMD build for gaming because i think is cheaper

actually im on a dell inspiron 1525 with x3100 you cant game at all...

remember im tottally a noob in this building stuff so this is it...

Motherboard: ASUS M5A99X EVO
CPU: FX-SERIES X6 6100
HDD: SEAGATE 500GB 7200 RP SATA 6GB/S 3.5"
RAM: DDR3 KINGSTON HYPERX BLU 8GB 1600MHZ KIT (KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX)
GPU: ASUS GTX650TI-O-1GD5 1GB
Case: COOLER MASTER RC-912-KKN1 HAF 912 - QHAF
DVD: LG GH24NS95 24X SUPERMULTIDRIVE D LAYER
PSU: Corsair Cx600 600w 80 Plus
Monitor: HP PAVILION 20" (XP597A3)

some things:

-i dont plan to overlock in the near time i mean no cooler so i cant xD
-i have a usb dvd writer, should i remove the dvd drive in the build or keep it? if i remove it i can upgrade the hdd from 500gb to 1tb
-i choose Haf-912 over Elite 430 because it has 2 fans instead of 1
-the monitor seems good to me i mean coming from a laptop that is a upgrade xD
-i choose the asus gtx 650 ti 1gb over a SAPPHIRE 11201-05-20G VAPORX HD7770 1GB <--- cheaper
-i made this build with this components cpu and ram and gpu with this mobo to be upgradeable even overlockable
-why all this components, ok so i find this online shop and here in mexico is kinda the cheapest i ever saw so they dont charge for shipping, the only thing i will buy from another vendor is the PSU

ok some questios

-this is a good build for an entry level? im planing to play skyrim, fallout 3, new vegas, mass effect trilogy will this build ok for that?

-i break my head over that psu, is 600w ok? remember no overlocking at the moment...

Any recomendations?
Green light? should i proceed to buy?

thanks in advance

The FX 6300 is a better processor if its in your budget

make sure the RAM is rated for 1.5 volts or less

The Corsair 200R is another case to consider

The 990X is a fantastic motherboard . But if you will only use one graphics card you dont need to spend that much .
The ASUS M5A97 evo is also great

or you could even use a cheaper mb like the
