Building my first pc, need a good graphics card in the $200-$250 range. Rest of the parts are as follows:
16 gb corsair vengeance RAM
AMD FX6300 3.5 ghz 6 cores
AMD gigabyte motherboard
Already have hard drives, optical drives, other shit. Just need the GPU.
Also my friend told me to just get a 600 watt power supply but I feel like that's not enough so some advice on that would be nice too.
Thanks in advance.
Just saying, for only gaming the i3 4130 makes much more sense. It has higher single core performance than the 6300 and has an upgrade path to the i5 4690k, which looks like it will be the last gaming processor anyone will ever need. For anything else like video editing, the 6300 does fare a little better which is where I think the FX line has found it's niche (many cores for little monies).
Although you probably have all of that stuff bought already.
