Is this budget gaming PC good?

Hi there.

I'm trying to build a budget gaming PC, here is what I have.



Questions:
Do you think I need better cooling?
Will I get good FPS in most games with this setup?

Thanks.

  1. What is your total budget and currency? Are you planning on building this on your own?
  2. Get a second 4GB stick of RAM so you can run in dual channel mode. Also I assume you'll be using that WLAN card, if so you should really upgrade to a 802.11n (or 802.11ac) card.
  3. am pretty sure this is a pre-built pc. as such no its not the best you can build for the price you seem to be paying.
    replace the fx-6100 with an fx-6300 , buy a cpu cooler like noctua or hyper 212 evo if you plan to overclock, add another 4gb or ram, change the graphics from 650 to 7770,change the power supply to a antec neo 520 or corsair cx500
  4. or go the Trinity FM2 route....
  5. Budget of around £500.
    How about this? Added cooler ect.

  6. i would change the psu to a better quality brand like corsair and i would change the cpu to fx-4300 or fx-6300

    The video card should be a 660 and if you can't swing it then a 2GB 650. Also you want a 4300/6300, processor names will be Vishera. Will you get good fps? Yes, assuming you get an aftermarket cooler and some thermal paste, and take the processor speed up to 4000mhz minimum, and 4500mhz preferred. The CPU OC along with a 660 and your fps will be good.
