I have all the parts now but before I assemble the computer I was hoping that someone could VERIFY that all these componets for compatibility.

CPU:AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor
Motherboard:Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Memory:G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage:Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video CardowerColor Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card
Case:Rosewill Blackbone ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply:Corsair Builder 600W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply
Operating System:Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit)

Also, before I begin the assembly does anyone have any tips or advice? This is my first time building a computer, and info you think may be helpful is appreciated.

are you going to use the stock cooler?

Yes, I was not advised by anyone in any previous threads to get an additional cooler, I forgot to mention I also have this optical drive.

if you're not going to overclock then yea stock cooler will be fine
so everything seems okay seeing that you like AMD

It is not that I prefer AMD, it was a build that was suggested to me for my budget for gaming by someone here on the forums lol. I could care less what the brand is, so long as performance is the best I can get for my money. But if everything here looks good and I will have no issues with compatibility then that is great! I can begin the building of the system tonight after work!

Does anyone have a good video for me to watch and learn how to build this? A tutorial? I would be happy with a video that closely relates to my build if anyone knows of one!

Thank you!

my bad didn't know this was a budget build yea AMD would be the way to go if you're on a budget and you don't really need to look at tutorials on how to put together a computer unless you really don't know what you're doing what you might want to do is look at a prebuilt computer that uses the same case that you're using to see the layout of the inside
