I wont be Overclocking, just gaming and doing homework. Please give suggestions. I didnt think i needed to get the Amd fx 8320 because of what i would be doing and the amount I would have to pay for a no hassle mobo budget was around 500. Crysis , bf4, arma 3, gta all of that i want to be able to play at about 1080p. Hope it kicks ***!

the recommended psu for the 270X is 500W. This is just an 80+ 430 watts which is not that efficient......

also why not get a faster 7200 rpm HD with double the capacity for a little more

I chose the wrong on i thought it was the 3.5 but i chose 500 because i have a 150gb external that i was going to use and thats a 2.5. I thought that psu was a steal but i will upgrade it

that psu would be ok for a gtx 750 but honestly no need for that with the 270x, in this case the corsair is better as its 80+ bronze. Requirements maybe a little over but the reason for that is because people usually cheap out on the PSU.

Made some changes that may better suit your needs and the case/psu i have used and still own but no longer use but it still works.

I picked the case only so u could spend more money on better ram and a larger hdd.

Later when i have more time ill throw together a micro pc for u around the same price PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
