So, yeah I pretty much want to build a new PC, my current one was a dino even when I bought it. Starting from a scratch, I would like you guys to help me build a PC which can be futureproof for atleast 4 years. I want to know what components should I select. My budget is somewhere between $600 - $400. I'm not looking for fancy components, plain performance at a good price. I live in India so I can't order from nNewegg so the discounts they offer can't be factored in. I'm not looking to crossfire more than 2 GPUs, and initially I'm only looking forward to buying only one AMD GPU. BTW I already have a Dell IN2030M monitor and I'm not interested in 3D gaming stuff for now. (Gosh! I said I so many times!)

And I think I'm fixeted on AMD FX-6350 for the processor,
8GBs of RAM,
500GBs HDD (because I already have two one is 500 gigs and the other is some 120 gigs, I'd even like to know whether I could use these 2 and the new one together in the new PC),
and either an ASUS or a GIGABYTE MoBo,
And lastly mostly the HD 7790 as the GPU.
All help would be appreciated.

Edit: I think I'll Be going for the Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 for the MoBo

I actually don't want to go for and NVIDIA GPU, and no, AMD GPUs aren't priced higher, plus I plan on buying everything in mid june, so i think by then we'd have the requisites here.

dude i am not investigating i wanna know where u getting it cause i am also about to upgrade and it would help to get things cheaper

definitely get a asus motherboard cause they have good customer support
8gb of ram is the sweet spot for gaming and have the 2x4gb config
you can use as many hard drives as u want
for 1600 x 900 resolution the graphic card is good but some games u will have trouble maxing out
the only thing i am concerned about would be fx 6350 availability in india
check out the link for the graphic card performance

SEE? That was an amazing answer, I've finalized the Asus M5A99FX R2.0,
The 6350 FX (I dunno where to get it, I'm gonna go around Mumbai looking for it and other parts and deals)
and I kinda am fixeted on the 7790 HD it seems like a high - mid range GPU, RAM and HDD I haven't fixed but I'll use my old PC's ones for the time being, Most probably I'll go for a corsair or a cooler master one not sure about the brand but I'm going for an 800W PSU.

dude 800 psu would be a huge overkill
a good 500 watts psu will be okay if u would overclock but not crossfire
if u would want to crossfire a 600 watts psu would be enough
but u definitely don't need a 800 watts psu
i understand your point hd 7790 would be apt for ur resolution but i was just suggesting that a gtx 650 ti boost even a 1gb version is a good card and will give u more future proofing
