Budget build hardware opinions!!!

I'm looking to build my first PC on a semi loose budget and gathered what knowledge I could about some of the hardware and wanted some opinions on my picks. Is some of it overkill or under powered essentially.

*Msi 970 gaming motherboard bundle w/ 8350 chip w/ wraith cooler- $189.98

*16gb Hyper Xfury ram (more than necessary?)

*Red Devil 4gb Rx480 GPU

*Supernova 600w 80+ bronze power Supply

*250gb Samsung SSD for OS

*1tb hybrid for hard drive

Sorry if I'm missing anything this is just off the top of my head.

What will you be doing on this PC?

Just basic gaming and Web browsing.

  • Intel Skylake CPUS beat all AMDs for the price in terms of gaming and dektop usage.

  • You will not need a CPU cooler with that CPU or the one I have chose.

  • You will need to change motherboard and ram to support the intel Skylake

  • I doubt you will ever use that much storage for general gaming and web browsing. Maybe a moderate 1 TB HDD with a fast 120gb SSD for quick boot ups.

  • That graphics card is bad for the price right now.

  • The NEX series is also mediocre and certainly isn't worth it's price
