Hey guys,

This is how far I've gotten with my build; first time building a PC.
Any suggestions / issues? I'm a complete noob at this so bear with me.

Link: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2h9yR

CPU:AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz 8-Core Processor ($129.99 @ Amazon)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 76.8 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($19.98 @ OutletPC)
Motherboard: Asus M5A97 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($92.99 @ NCIX US)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($76.98 @ OutletPC)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.98 @ OutletPC)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card ($339.99 @ NCIX US)
Case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case ($39.99 @ NCIX US)
Power Supply: Corsair CX 600W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($52.99 @ NCIX US)
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ($19.98 @ OutletPC)


Total: $832.87
It's a tad bit over budget. Getting the figure as cheap as possible without sacrificing the general above specs would be awesome!

I like AMD, have an fx6300 but with a $800 build I'm going with an i5 4670k 95% of the time and an fx8350 the other 5%.

This would be my almost ideal build for that budget.

If you don't plan to OC you don't need the cooler. If you live near a microcenter you can get a CPU/mobo combo and say about $50+
