Need some help for a budget build (first time)

#1JigSaw3Posted 2/9/2014 12:14:31 PM
So I'm a little nervous at the thought of building a pc. I have a decent desktop now but it seems to have these cpu usage spikes that I don't know how to fix (its an older hp pavilion a6683w). Therefore, I decided to just indulge in the idea of building one myself with no prior experience.
So here is what I have so far:

-corsair 430w PSU, http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Builder-Series-Watt-CX430/dp/B0092ML1SC

-Asus Radeon R7 240 video card,
http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-2GB-Graphics-Cards-R7240-2GD3-L/dp/B00FW5B3ZO/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1391972492&sr=1-1&keywords=asus+radeon+r7+240

-Keyboard, mouse and monitor

I prefer to keep the pricing around $400 or maybe $500, but no more than $600. I'm more or less trying to cut a bit of my cost due to what I'm working with. I don't plan on playing high demanding games. It'll be mostly for games like league of legends, hearthstone, counterstrike go, team fortress 2.

Here is what I've been thinking about so far:

My knowledge is minimal so I've been going off this website:

Thanks for taking the time to read this long post, but as you can probably tell by now I'm a bit worried about spending money on something I've never done before.
