This is my build first actual build :)  Feel free to comment anything you think about this build.
Keep in mind I have a HDD and I have other ways of getting an optical drive and OS. Other than that, just let me know what I could do better for cheaper or do better for a little more visa versa. :D  Just let me know what you think. Thanks!

Got you a better cpu and a lot better gpu. You don't need a full tower, got you a good mid tower. A 650w is un-necessary, 550 is fine. Removed cpu cooler since your not overclocking. If yuou search hard enough, you can fidn cheaper prices at ncix.com
Get Azn Cracker's psu. It's such a good deal.

FX-6300 cpu...it's better and like $5 cheaper....If you really insist on the cpu cooler, whatever. Since you're not overclocking it's really not necessary. The stock cooler is fine. I still think you're better off cutting the ssd and getting a better gpu like the 7850. The ssd will only hold windows so if you really insist on a faster loading time over graphics, go for it.

If you can, get this build. I put some parts in custom because it was cheaper at ncix.com. I realized that the psu sucks now, before it was a seasonic psu but not anymore. I got you a more reliable psu, a better case and a better gpu. This should do you well.

Whats the difference with the RAM?


It's higher speed and FX CPUs works better with higher speed modules...Their memory controller works with 1866MHz at default!
