Looking for feedback and maybe opinions of where less could be spent without much risk to performance?
The FX 6300 will bottleneck the 290 on CPU intensive games or games which dont take advantage of the extra cores, this will limit the GPU's performance on certain games. I would recommend a GTX 970 if you can afford it or a r9 280x ( around £50 cheaper) and with the money saved on the GPU get an FX 8320 and overclock it.
