First time building a PC so any and all advice would be appreciated.

Build: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/hKX6P6 (As you can tell its budget)

first off should i go for the AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor or the AMD FX-4300 4-core processor? Is they any danger of the components bottle necking each other?

Any and all advice concerning building or component choice would be appreciated.

Also could this fit into Mac g4 tower?

Look at playing Games such as plantetside 2, battlefield , skyrim and borderlands.

I would go 6300 but that motherboard doesn't support that cpu so you may want to get a newer motherboard.

That cooler isnt good so either upgrade to the hyper 212 or dont overclock and buy the 212 when you can afford it.dont bother with that case fan either

also go with ddr3 1600 RAM that ram requires high voltage by the looks of it

this gpu is much better for a few pounds more and if you buy through flubbit you will save the difference http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-02gp43757kr

do you have an OS, also that psu seems unreliable
