Most people would probably tell you to go with intel, but if you want to stick with AMD I would go with to a fx 6300 and get a better gpu. That PSU is overkill, go with a 600w PSU.

You can bump your video card up if you want a better one and you'd still be under budget. hope this helps.

If you don't plan to overclock then we can shave a lot more off the budget.

If this was for a gaming build, more of the budget should go to the GPU rather than the CPU

I dunno, I have a 7950 which I'm pretty sure is the same card as the R9 280 and it overclocks easily and still beasts pretty much every game, I don't see anything wrong with that video card especially for that price. BannedMom's build was better though.

I don't know how to overclock so I won't be doing it. I don't even know how to build so I'm gonna get Cyberpower to do it for me..

that's sad to hear.... building is not that complicated, the only difficult part would be installing the heatsink (difficult for someone who hasnt done it before), but there are youtube videos to guide you on that process.

Looks like a great value on the video card, i would research to make sure that motherboard can handle the cpu you selected.

the power supply is an incredible value for $60 and will give you ability to crossfire your gpu in the future.

you also dont need a full tower case, you dont have many components, go for a mid tower as they are cheaper.

Building is EZ. Modern PC components are like legos. Just plug and go.
