    ​Always going to need a price range.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    It would be useful if you provided some information about what sort of usage it's supposed to cover.

    Like: Basic usage like web browsing and small games.
    Or if you would play games like BF4 / CoD Ghosts / WoW etc...

    Thanks, @Ex0rPl4net I'll be looking into this one.
    @Jorndel Yeah I be using it for basic computing mainly but a small amount of gaming not too much.

    Don't.
    That GPU is way overpowered for the CPU he's got in, and you'd most likely be bottnecked due to it.
    I suggest the same combo to everyone in the $600 range. FX-6300 and a Radeon 7850.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,

    Its not a bottleneck.
    this computer can run BF3 maxed out at 1080p at 60fps+,dont listen to aborted..seriously
    all the parts work perfectly together without bottlenecking each other,and it looks awsome!
    wow...

    This is 100% incorrect. If staying with AMD CPU's, he needs to move into the FX 6core series of CPU's. @Aborted is in fact right that it is a bottleneck. @awessome.exe Go for an FX- 6100 for slightly more money.

    Since you stated that you will do little to no gaming, I suggest a Radeon 6670 - Good value for money, although it will not run some things at the max settings.

    By doing the above, you will free up your budget for other things such as improving that processor.

    Also, try to pirate your OS if you can.

    + Go for basic RAM (but of a good quality ofc), don't bother going for the fancy shit - not worth it IMO

    Would an R9 270 (not 270X) be compatible with an FX-6300?
