  1. Everything looks good, you'll have to upgrade your GPU if you want to play demanding games at near max settings though.
  2. I'd get a FX-6300 and then a HD 7850.
  3. Everything looks pretty good, but for max graphics, you might need a better GPU. Also, I would go with Intel, but that's just personal preference.
  4. yeah get the FX6300 and a 7850
  5. This is a good and popular power supply here at the forums:

    CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE

  6. generally look for a Corsair CX500 any xfx 550W/450W or antec neo eco 500/620W and pick te cheapest one of them all
  7. I'm going to go with the FX6300 and a 7850. Thanks so much!
