I live in Sydney, Australia.

I want to build an AMD gaming PC for less than 850 Australian dollars.

It should also support adding up to 16GB RAM and a SSD drive at a later date.

I have decided to order the components from

This is what I have thought of so far:

CPU: AMD FX 6300 $149

Mobo: ASRock 970DE3-U3S3 $69.30

RAM: Corsair CMX8GX3M2B1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1 TB ST1000DM003 HDD $73

GPU: Leadtek GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card $279

Case: Sharkoon T28 Series ATX Case $77.47

PSU: Antec 520W High Current Gamer Power Supply $85

ODD: Samsung SH-224BB/BEBS 24x Internal SATA DVD OEM Burner Drive $19.99

HSF: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler $35

Total: $846.76

Are these components all compatible and would this config allow me to upgrade to 16GB RAM and add a SSD in the future?

Best solution
