First gaming rig here is my first rig im ordering the parts in two weeks anything i should change like for example should i change the 6300 for a 4300

I would swap the 6300 for a phenom II 965  and then get a 7870 instead if its a gaming build


Hope it helped!

will the 550 watt still be able to run both the 7870 and the phenom ii 965

It should but if you are concerned then get a higher wattage psu I run a 2600k and a 670 on a 600w psu so you should be fine

thanks i was just worried since this is my first build and dont want to screw it up
