Hi, thank you for taking the time to read my post. I have never built a computer before.
I was confused as to which parts were good, so I asked my friend and this is the build he recommended. However, I would like a second opinion before I buy it.
I plan on using this computer for gaming, particularly games that use the source and unreal engines.
My max budget is around $520 USD, however I would like to get it down without skimping on performance. If anyone could help me it would be much appreciated.

Here's the build:

Motherboard: MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Power Supply: SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

I actually didnt mean to post that second power supply link. If byupgrading you mean adding another gpu for most of gpu's 500watts is still plenty. guess it depents how you want to upgrade it.

Ok thanks. And for having RAM at a clock speed of 1866MHz, is this good?

Oh, and the reviews for the first PSU say it fails after the first year often. Is it just their luck or should I be wary of it?
