I was wondering if my build for this PC would be a decent gaming PC with no bottlenecking.

Should atleast get DD3 1600MHz, and you need a lot bigger of a power supply than 300W, should atleast be 500W with a descrete graphics card.

Better machine for $10 less. Don't go wireless unless you absolutely have to.

Feel free to adjust the gfx card.

ok MR. costa i will make it more simple for u so u would be convened that the sapphire toxic 280x is better than any gtx 770 and i am talking about the sapphire toxic not any other 3rd party the 280x is 3gb and the 770 gtx is only 2gb i know there is an 4gb version but its more expensive so i cannot compare it to the 280x 3gb due to price difference so 3gb is more future proof for gaming the 280x will last more before u will need to upgrade it in terms of performance the 770 gtx is almost the same as the 280x in some games and some games the gtx 770 has the upper hand and in some games the 280x has the upper hand so it depends on the game u r playing but the 280x is 384 bit and the gtx is only 256 bit but till now there are no 770 gtx good enough to beat the sapphire toxic 280x 3gb ddr5

That's all very beautiful, but you can get an Asus GTX 770 for $90 less than a 280X Toxic and it consumes much less power so it's a more economical purchase for the same performance. Oh and Nvidia drivers are better, no matter what you say against it, they just are.
