This would be my first gaming pc and I'm really excited about it, though confused. Budget: $500 Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Gaming (H1Z1, CSGO, BO2, BF4, etc) please include the XFX R9 380 2GB and the FX6300 on the parts list.

Thank you :D

I like this build but I read the 970 series has compatibility issues with Vishera CPUs.

First: why just the 2gb card? Second: Do you need peripherals, os etc?

I'm not a passionate gamer so I think that GPU is enough. I'll use my old peripherals and I can get the OS from a frined of mine.

But the 4GB version of the 380 costs the same and is well worth it. It can easily use up to 3GB of VRAM. Just look at the 280/280X/285.

You're right. I might go for the 380 4gb

There's a Powercolor R9 380 4GB for $199 USD I think. Just filter 380 and have the lowest prices at the top of the list.

Hadn't considered the X4 with 4gb GPU. Thanks MIstuhJ.
