This is my first build for gaming. Have a tight budget so i choose the part below for the following reasons:

  1. CPU: find out that fx6300 was the best budget cpu on the market. If needed later on, i can overclock it to 4,5GHZ with a good cpu cooler.

  2. Motherboard: Choose the gigabyte GA-970A-D3P, want an atx motherboard with standard feature and also usb 3.0 headers.

  3. RAM: Seem the best budget 2x4GB RAM on the market, a lot of great review from the people.

  4. SSD: Got the Samsung 840 EVO 120 GB, Samsung seem one of the best budget/quality/speed SSD on the market. Will install my OS on this one and most use apps...

  5. GPU: Find this great GPU in specials, Go for an r9 280 XFX, good feedback from customers.

  6. Case: Want the fractal design r4 but finally get the CORE 3300 for pricing consideration (2X). Look a really good case, really modular with a lot of cooling/fan possibility...

  7. PSU: Got this great PSU at good price... What i like: Fully Modular, 650 watts, 80+ gold, 10 years warranty.

  8. HDD: Got a spare Western Digital 1 TB HDD at home for data storage/games.

  9. Optical Drive: Got a spare sata DVD-ROM at home

  10. Monitor: Got a Samsung 23,6 inch, full hd, 2ms, HDMI at 119,99$ on NCIX

WOW, very nice. i would overclocked with some air cooler or water cooler instead of the original. You can do that easily. No doubt it's a great choice according to budget/quality.
