This is my first PC, if anybody has any good parts they want to add please say it, and keep it at the price around (preferably under) with my build. Hoping I could play some GTA 5 with this just to try http://pcpartpicker.com/list/gvgK7h The mouse/keyboard I need, since Ive been running on a laptop and I didnt look to much at those and hopefully theres some better ones.

Here , I change most of your build. Enjoy your improved part list. I optimised your build for gaming.

  • Increased your GPU and CPU horsepower

  • Choosing a reliable Mouse and keyboard

  • I reduce your PSU wattage for better budget

  • I choose you a better case because Fractal Define R5 is for Higher budget build.

-Reduce to 8GB because game use less RAM

Well... I really like the case, the rest...

TBH i feel like you should change the case too, while it's a really well reviewed model it's kinda expensive considering your budget, I'm guessing $500, this is what I'd suggest instead.

AMD's fm2+ platform is already known to be obsolete, they have a new range of cpus launching late this/early next year & they've announced that those chips (architecture codename zen) will need new mobos.

The gpu is kinda weak too tbh, the nvidia cards that begin "gt" are generally "media" cards, their proper gaming cards are all called "gtx".

Here's a couple of quick benchmark comparisons -

Tho nvidias next gen 1050ti is supposed to be launching in a few weeks and, so the rumours say, will have 960 level performance for 950 level pricing, so I'd prolly try and wait for that to land.

Also used a cheap keyb/mouse combo.

And a better quality psu -

The Seasonic S12II Bronze 430 W is a flawless power supply. It has superb voltage regulation, with all its voltages within 3% of their nominal values, extremely low noise and ripple levels, and efficiency between 83.2% and 86.3%, which is outstanding for an entry-level power supply. It is also worth mentioning the outstanding cable configuration for a 430 W unit, with two connectors for video cards and six SATA power connectors. And, to top it off, the price is more than right for all the features this power supply brings. In summary, you can buy this power supply with your eyes closed. You won’t regret it.

Intel build also gives you way better upgrade options as the 1151 mobo will be compatible with 2 more cpu lines over the next few years (kaby lake and cannon lake).
