Entry level rig

Im building my first PC and i have a build im $100 away from. With the help of my friend im cutting a few dollars off of it.

CPU - AMD FX 6300

Graphics Card - Asus DC2 HD 7770 1GB

Power Supply - Corsair CX500

Motherboard - Asus M5A78L-M LX PLUS

RAM - Kingston Hyper X Blu 8GB (2x4) 1600Mhz

OS - Windows 7 32bit

Case - NZXT Source 210

Total Cost - $593.05 on Amazon

Thoughts, suggestions, or anything else?


You didn't list an optical drive.  Looks good except are you getting a deal on the 7770.  For a few dollars more i'd go with the Asus 7770 with 2GB.  on that note since the R9 came out you can find some really good deals on 7850 and 7870.

The 7770 is a solid card, that's what i have in my system but i'm not into FPS but I get 40 - 60 fps playing diablo 3 on high settings. 

I didnt think an optical drive was all that necessary so going with a little more budget oriented build i cut it.


Figured you would need one to load windows


USB or if anything i can borrow my friends drive for the install.
