Can't you get a hard disk 1TB storage? they are super cheap nowadays.
Other than that, looks good to me!

I understand it's a budget build, but I'd seriously consider getting a higher quality PSU. PSU is the one thing you don't want to skimp on. If the PSU goes so does everything else.

I cant afford anything else it was orginally a EVGA powersupply and I was advised by people on this forum and tomshardware against it and to get the XFX PSU as they are made by seasonic and acctually stick to the 80+ bronze rating.

An 860K and a 380 is a bit of an odd combo. I'd try and get an i3 and whatever GPU you can get with that.

It's got more quality than others even at 80+ bronze, however I was thinking just a higher quality unit. If budget won't allow it then it's something to think about in the future

Just wondering why you say it's an odd combo?

I completely agree it will be a working progress until I get it perfect just wanted to get it built on a tight budget atm and will upgrade in the future. Also the XFX PSU comes with a 5 year warranty so if it goes wrong it's covered.

It's an odd combo because it's a low end CPU paired with a quite a mid to high end GPU. That's all he was saying on that
