Good choice of the FX-6300. but... if the budget allows, try the FX-5830.

I would suggest building off this. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/HkD7ZL

I bought £300 of it yesterday to fit in my current case. I would says it's some of the best bang for your buck when your working with the FX-6300 and the R9 270X.

Obviously swap out the motherboard as i was able to secure the last one (damn lucky too) and of course the case. The actually performance differences at this price range are tiny. 4GBs on the GPU instead of 2GBs is actually so insignificant it would be almost funny if it wasnt such a good rip off.

For memory 4GBs over 8GBs much the same as above. This price range isnt built for ultra settings. when playing med/high settings you wont be using more then 4GBs. FPS "may" drop 1-3.. and i highly stress may.

The 600W is overdoing it. estimated wattage at this price range and with the FX6300 and R9 270X is around 370W. A nice 500W is anough to upgrade down the line.

Add OS and WiFi and your good to go.
