No problem! I've done a very similar build for a friend (albeit with a 6350 and an antec case) and it is a great machine and the guy who uses it loves it , it plays all the games we throw at it with decent settings and fps.

Gonna need something with more grunt than a 660 for crysis or bf4 or any other newer game for that matter. Lowest i would recommend is a 7950 or 760. For a budget i strongly suggest a minimum of a 7870/660ti. Also for the CPU i would try to stretch it to a minimum of an 8320. Otherwise a I3 will serve you better with same or even more performance while drawing a lot less power(and run cooler). 8320/50 is the only CPU that can come in even close to a i5 intel cpu(sometimes on par or better) so i really recommend that too.

I know it will be more expensive but i would rather spend it now then later and save money when you realize you need more performance.

I'd still go with the 6300. http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i...vs-AMD-FX-6300


It really depends on the games that you play as to which cpu will give the better performance. single threaded games will run better on the i3 while games that use more than one core (battlefield for example) will run better on the fx6300. NeverBackDown is certainly right about the 660 although I'm sure it'll run fine on medium-low settings.

For the record, the 63xx series run games that aren't very good at running on more than one/two cores fine,such as planetside. They don't run them stupidly amazingly well, but for a budget cpu it is satisfactory. They're much better than the old bulldozer chips in single core performance.

-edit- the 6300 would be a much better bet if you want to overclock as well, I originally thought I nver would get into overclocking but the forums have changed my mind xD.

Here is a decent 7870 which will probably be a better bet for you: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-m...hdmi-2xmini-dp
2 free games as well and its not an accursed xfx card. Double score! .
