So this is what I have so far http://pcpartpicker.com/p/gLQtK8 . I already own this. After way too much research on the Cases dept. I ended up buying the R4 as I wanted a quiet comp and the GPU/PUS i bought in a combo for 150$. So this is where I am stuck. Do i go with the i5, the 8350, the 6300? Do i invest in ssd, in a good mobo? i just dont know.

I am currently on a laptop that cant ever run minecraft and gets 25fps on lowest settings for league of legends. I want to beable to run new games on ultra with 60fps (i know it may not be possible but it sounds appealing). So I have a 600-800$ left in my budget. So try to get me close to that. (lower is better as I am a broke college student)

Thank you for any and all help

Hello I am also a broke college student so i put this as price to performance. So the best you can get with good quality products and performance.

Intel i5 $520: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Rpc2bv

Amd fx-6300 $450: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/49MRgs

Amd fx-8350 $495: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/MCHwkL

these are under your budget so you can upgrade parts that you think will need more. It also leaves room so you can choose what windows OS you want.

The hybrid drive is something that will help a lot. This has close performance of an ssd but still having that big space of a regular hard drive. Even with this budget you can still choose to get a good ssd and hard drive, this will only be $170 to add to your build.

If you want an ssd and hdd way then here are some of the best you can get. Just remove the hybrid hard drive i put in the other part lists and get the normal hard drive and choose 1 of the ssds listed on this one. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/CBKYQ7

The motherboard is great quality and asus will always support you on any problems they have. Even then this is a great motherboard that is reliable.

Besides that if you have any more questions about the parts just ask.

Also i also had problems with low fps on minecraft. Install optifine for the version of minecraft you are using. Now I get max on tiny and 25 fps on medium with 8 chunk render distance. Try that, it will give you at least 15-25 fps boost from what you have now.

This build is a little bit more than your budget, but if you don't plan on overclocking then you can get rid of the CPU cooler in the list to bring down the price because the stock cooler would be enough if you're not overclocking.

BTW i really dont trust msi motherboards that much. ASRock, Gigabyte, or ASUS would be the best ones.
