Hi, I got into pc's a long time ago, Im considering on saving up and building a pc(first build) around September. my budget for everything is $830(£500), So here's what Im thinking

Computer:

Processor - Amd-FX 6300
Case - not sure what case yet thinking CM Storm scout 2, preferably $80(£50)
Storage - WD Caviar blue 1tb 7200rpm
GPU - Evga Gtx 750ti FTW Edition
PSU - Corsair CX 500W
RAM - Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8gb (2 sticks 4gb)
Motherboard - Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 Motherboard -Price=$631.89(£381.16)

Peripherals:
- Mouse - Perrix MX-2000II
- Keyboard - Random cheap keyboard will buy one in future
- Monitor - Packard Bell Viseo 243D 24"
- Mouse Pad - SteelSeries qck+
- Price=$203.84(£122.96)

All together this Setup costs around $835(£631) a little bit over budget ($5) if there any suggestions to make this cheaper and remain with good performance it would be much appreciated. :) 

I posted a Identical thread on reddit, http://redd.it/22d8p5
Every Suggestion is Much appreciated :D

Change the PSU. Antec, XFX, Seasonic, Corsair ( not, CX, CS, RM).

DO NOT get the LE version of that motherboard. IT has poor power phases, no VRM heatsinks, and overheats.

But this is all pointless. All new tech will be releasing between now and September so make a new thread a week or so before you plan to buy. Planning this far ahead really is worthless.
