Is this a okay PC build?

I'm looking to build my own PC, I have picked out my parts, posted multiple question for info and done alot of research. The PSU and the motherboard i'm still sketchy on but for the most part determind on these parts:

Motherboard: ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0

CPU: FX-6300

Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) ------- Maybe a lowprofile version?

HDD: WD Blue 1TB 7200 RPM

Case: Elite 311+

GPU: Sapphire HD 7770 GHz edition

Right now i'm just looking for a upgrade from my current PC. I don't have a huge budget, I am buying these parts one at a time. I know the GPU isn't great but it's alot better than what i have now and I can always upgrade.

For the PSU I don't know whats realiable and what's not so here are the ones im lookign at:

SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W

XFX Core Edition PRO550W

Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2DB 500W

Please give me your feed back on sugguestion, also please give a explaination why these parts should be changed out and not just a list of new parts or some unhelpful answer.

Thank you!


I have a case fan picked out as well as a cheap DVD burner, and as for an operating system I will be buying windows 7 but that will be the last part of the PC I will buy.

I mainly posted this to pick out the right PSU and too see the feedback on the motherboard, so please try to cover them in your answer :)

A SSD will probably be a later upgrade but I don't have the extra money right now.

    This is a okay pc build. And for the psu go for xfx core edition pro550W. If you want to change your parts change the graphics card and do it to hd 7970 or gtx 680 or HD7950. But you have to change your psu too to 600W to play in crossfire or SLI.

    just a suggestion here: dont go cheap on powersupply. my first was doa and this one the fan is already going bad not even a year. i'd probably pick the middle powersupply though out of those 3.

    i like powerful videocards, so if you can find a 7850 that isnt much more than the 7770, get that (its about 50% faster).

    Looks good. Get the Seasonic or XFX power supply. You don't need more wattage, so don't listen to that guy. Try to find a FX-6350, it's the same price but has a bit more performance.

    Everything looks good. I would go with the 550W power supply or maybe bump it to 600W. Newegg has a good power supply selection program to help you choose to make sure.
