Hello what do you guys think about this build, I pretty much only play Mobas/MMO games occasionally touching AAA titles.

  • ...4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory: Keep in mind that if you ever intend to upgrade, most Intel processors are intended to work with DDR3-1600. As for the amount, 8GB would be considered the sweet spot for Windows operating system.

Thanks for the response,

I bumped my ram to 4GB DDR3-1600, i am trying to keep this build under 400$ so wont be able to get another 4GB until i have more cash.

As it sits now how do you think it will perform playing mmo/moba casual games etc?

What about this instead. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/NRjGhM

You should be able to get a good oc with the 3258. It will help in alot of games. The 260X has 2gb of vram and performs similar(maybe a bit better) to a 7790. I wouldn't trust that power supply go with the cx 500 instead. If you can come up with the bit of extra cash to cover the MIRs and shipping, I feel like this will serve you better.
