This second topic I created but I have updates.
Because the new xbox graphics do not look much better then what my old iBuypower and cost too much I choose to play PC only.

The shop budget is 800 from 600 now and I have more research.

This will last long time and the power box good for low price?

I would say try to add an SSD. Awesome pieces of tech.

And you really need to think about your psu (power box to you)... never heard of thermaltake (new to all this anyway) add another 10 more $ and you may be able to get a seasonic or a corsair make, and beware, those new AMD GPUs apparently run quite hot. So a not so good make of PSU my crap on your (IMO) lovely looking PC.

Not bad TC, but like others have said get a better PSU.

Also, if you want to save some money, you can go with a cheaper case. Unless you really like that one or just want to have a cool looking case or something. Me personally, as long as the case functions correctly, I don't care what it looks like so I go with a cheaper one.

...or any of the many other brands that have perfectly fine units, like XFX, Rosewill, OCZ, NZXT, Kingwin, Super Flower, Antec, Silverstone, Lepa, AData, Fractal Design, EVGA, ... The whole Seasonic/Corsair thing is getting old. Ignore the brand, research what's a good unit for a good price. For example XFX typically offers better value than Seasonic or Corsair, and all XFX units are made by Seasonic anyway.

That said, that Thermaltake TR2 600 is junk, don't get it.

Sorry I only have experience with the Corsair and seasonic. Never had the chance or been brave enough to try another brand and a while back you told me to stay away from Thermaltake. :)

Looks good. Much better power supply. Some will tell you to go for a i5 4670k instead of the FX 8350. Though it is not so clear cut, and I think a case can be made for that 8350 which, if I am not mistaken, is about $40 less than the i5, and a great CPU in itself.

I disagree with previous comments that you should fit in an SSD. On your budget, you will be forced to get a considerably worse CPU/GPU to fit that SSD in the budget, which is not the best way to go if gaming is your priority. Besides, you can easily add the SSD anytime at a later date should you want one.

The 280x is essentially the same as the 7970. The latter can be found for about 20 bucks less. So maybe you want to look if you can spot such a deal. The cheapes I have seen the 7970 is $260.

At that price, you should be looking to go Intel i5 for the CPU. AMD is only good for the extreme budget builds, such as pairing a FX6300 with a <$50 board.

Something like this is much better balanced. While the 280x will give you better performance initially, you can always upgrade your GPU later for a lot cheaper, as GPU technology advances much faster in terms of gaming performance. You can also use the money saved to grab a Hyper 212Evo to overclock that 4670k for even better performance.
