600$ gaming pc (us)

all right here is what i have PLS PUT SUGESTIONS!! 

AMD FX-6350 3.9GHz 6-Core Processor

Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard

Crucial Ballistix 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

Toshiba 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

EVGA GeForce GTX 660 2GB Video Card

NZXT Source 210 Window ATX Mid Tower Case

Corsair CX 500W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply


i did a few changes on your build

i picked a better motherboard for you that FX6350 125W tdp cpu, i picked up the Asus M5A97 R2.0 4+2 powerphase digi vrm,  this board has a littlebit more feutures then the LE version, you selected, the Le version also don't have any heat sinks on the vrm´s, so with a 125W tdp cpu those vrms could run hot, thats why i choosed for a better mobo, You can eaven cheap out to under 600 if you just go for the FX6300 cpu instead of that FX6350. both cpu´s are great for gaming.

Further i selected cheaper ram, G-skill ares 2x4GB 1866mhz its cheaper and faster. And i also selected a bit nicer case, with usb 3.0.


Grtz Angel ☺

can you find a case that has a window

look at this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/18Xs4

case: Zalman ZM-Z9 usb3.

Thats realy a nice case in my oppinion, with big window.

Fixed it I will keep that case in mind http://pcpartpicker.com/p/18XAj I can scroung up 12$

okay, but as i said above, i realy not recommend the asus M5A97 Le R2.0 mobo with that 125W tdp cpu, if you ever temp to oc.

Why not? I have this mobo, and it offers OC features. My CPU is a bit  different though. It is 95W FX6300 and I never tried to OC it. Instead I removed all the case fans and enjoy an absolutely quite PC with a stock CPU fan.

can someone quickly tell me what is needed to OC a cpu? can you only OC a cpu or can you OC other components? i know you also need really good ventilation. and what controls the OC? is it the cpu or MOBO?

you gave the ansewr your self you have a FX6300 cpu 95Wtdp, FX6350 125W tdp used more power especialy when you wanne go on OC, this board does have a 4+2 powerphase, thats why it has those oc feutures, but it still has no heat sink on the vrm´s so with oc they would run extreme hot, also those board are just not made for it.

for a good oc you need decent cooling,. decent psu, and a mobo with a decent powerphase design and quality vrm´s. and a unlocked cpu.

what does a psu have to do with it? does it have to have a special property or just have to be powerful?

what's a vrm? and how do you know if it's unlocked?
