First Build, Need Help!

I'm going to build my first ever pc on a budget and I wanna hear your opinions on my build. Specs :

AMD FX-8150 3.6GHz Liquid Cooled Edition


WDC Black 1TB SATA3 64MB

Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Black PC15000 8GB Dual Channel (2x4GB)

ASUS Radeon HD 7770

Corsair CX600 Watt


By the way I'll use this rig to play games and editing, is it good? Should I change the vga to RHD 7870? and should I change the mobo to ASRock 990FX Extreme4 to make it even cheaper? and please give your reasons..

All answers would be appreciated, sorry if my english is not so good. I'm Indonesian. :D

Without a properly defined price point it is hard to tell. (Also, since you appear to be outside of the US it would also be helpful if you provided us the website by which you will acquire your parts, just to be sure it fits your particular currency.)


Now, its about 1020 USD in my country. Can't find any good website, there's no such place like "NCIX" here in indonesia. But i found this website

Just enter the specs there

I'd say, a little better Graphcis card becuase else you might be bottlenecking a bit I think. Atleast go for a 7850. (I'd recommend 7870 or 7950)

I've been thinking about taking the 7870, any idea about the best manufacturer? Asus? HIS? Sapphire? XFX??

Switch that 8150 for an 8320. Just buy an aftermarket cooler. The one with AMD is expensive IMO. Something like a CM TPC 812 or Noctua NH-D14 will be better.

You won't be able to max out some games on that card, so bump up to at least a 7850, or a 7870( I think you could if you don't buy the liquid cooled CPU and buy an 8320 instead). Good brands IMO are ASUS, Gigabyte, XFX, HIS and Sapphire. Other brands are good as well, I just like those specific brands.

Bump down that mobo.

You might want to get an SSD for editing. And/ or get 16GB ram

if you can get a HD 7870 with the 8320 cpu like Z said do that if not i would down grade to a 6300 cpu and get a HD 7870. If you are going for gaming get the best gfx you can pretty much any half decent cpu will do.

As far as manufacturer they are all pretty much the same I like XFX they make reference cards and use the drivers so you can use beta drivers and the latest drivers as soon as they come out (Useually when a new game comes out) and their support is awesome get back to you within 5 minuits.

I would avoid sapphire tho as they require sapphire's custom drivers means you cant use beta drivers updates are slow and half the time sapphires driver just dont work and they require all off saphires fail software to be running in the background.

go with this build

Oh and, I think that you'll be using CUDA enhanced programs for editing, so 660, 660 Ti, 670 cards might be better.

go with a msi version


Unfortunately, the best fx series in my country is still the fx 8150. Dunno why the fx 8350 hasn't launch yet..

Due to the money I have, I updated the components to make it even cheaper, what do you think?

yea it looks like a good build.

You can get some stuff cheaper like ram if you are ordering from ca but i assume you are not.

Converted to Canada monay it might not be around the same price but it's the main idea, switch to a better cpu then you won't need as much cooling power, you don't need 1866 Ram and cutting back is important on a limited budget, the PSU is overkill find an 80$ish one like the seasonic I suggested, that Fractal case is awesome, and that's it.
