Well, I wasn't planning on windows anyways. I'm 13 and wanted to try programming (learning python right now) lol still don't know where I'll get the money so I'm really hoping for some price drops. Thanks for the help!

Hmm, I threw in the 8320e instead of the 6300. People speak of some pretty good overclocks.
How will the AsRock 970M Pro3 overclock? I have the cryorig h7 and 4gb ddr3 2100 ghz in my parts list right now

As am I. I feel like FX will be very effective in a low budget build both for gaming and workstations.

Have you guys seen the "leaks" :P for the new 10 core i7 and 32 AMD Zen. I'm not exited for the chips themselves, but rather the potential price drops.

GPU

I chose Nvidia because I've seen reviews saying the 390 can get hot and I also want low power consumption so I can use a PSU on the smaller side. There were also not a lot of choices on GPU's that would fit in the case

Mobo+CPU

I went with the Z170 for lots of reasons and I dodn't think overclocking would be smart in such a small case

Thanks for the feedback!

I suppose the i3-6100 would work but I went i5 because more and more games require 4 cores.

Reasoning


CPU:

I selected this to take advantage of your RAM, plus it's still a pretty solid CPU. Four cores @ 3.2 will get the job done.

Mobo:

I chose this because since you are just gaming and surfing, an H series mobo is just fine. It's Micro ATX so you'll get less features but that's not always the case. It is here tho... sorry :P. Basically you're just losing out on overclocking.

PSU:

Since your GPU has a very low power consumption I went with the CX at 430W. It's not a particularly great PSU, but I think it'll do just fine. VERY cheap and should serve you well.

Case:

It's just a case m8. There are so many options I just threw in the first one that looked like a good price and decent quality. I don't know your style so I won't call what your PC looks like.

I think it looks great. Just nitpicking, that monitor won't be ideal for gaming but considering your budget, I'd say it's fine.

Very, very good build. As for GPU selection I would have gone with this just because of the brand (whish is a noob move on me probably) or this because it says FTW. Ya, I have problems lol.

Basically fantastic build don't take any of my suggestions seriously except the one about the monitor, ya upgrade that later once you get the money. Btw you have no OS also.

Wow, that's awesome. I think I might snoop around for some PC people threw out when the PSU 20+4 connector got detached so they just thought it "Got old" lol. Btw I found out my school has Optiplex 780's sitting in a corner. I'm dying to throw in another 2 GB RAM, 500 GB Hard drive, some fans and a cheap GPU. It's really not a terrible machine.
