It's a good build overall. I don't see the reason for a 600W psu when your entire system will more than likely use less than 300W. That is unless you plan on upgrading then I can see why.

It's good but I get Ram at 1600 hz or better. Not that big of a deal, however.

Drop the cooler and 4 gigs of ram, get a 4570 and a 660.

RAM speed makes no difference in gaming. One could go from 1033mhz to 3200mhz and see no difference.

Def not dropping the RAM to 4. I want 8. Keeping the cooler, do not want to risk it. 600 watts will basically future proof my rig. Glad you guys like it, I'm guessing I did pretty good for myself. Putting it together will be another story.

That would be over his budget

Wouldn't a stock i5 be faster than this processor OCed? If so then why not drop the cooler and get the better processor. I know this board is obsessed with them but I have been building my own gaming PCs for 13 years and never used anything other than stock.The 3 PCs I built in that time are still all working great.

It would be faster but the CPU is also like 50-60 bucks more than the 6300... It still goes over his price

The reason he doesn't need to drop the processor, is it will not be bottlenecking him not to mention this is in a way a budget build. It's by no means a high end build.
