    Thumbs up Getting [500$] ~ Suggest a mobo and processor [AMD only]

    Budget: Upto 500$. 8GB RAM and that 7870 GHZ edition is must.

    Buying to:
    Have a smooth maxed out bf4 at 1280x1024 (will upgrade later, not more than 1080p)

    I got:
    1TB Seagate internal, Case, DVD Writer, SMPS-Corsair-500W bronze, 5.1 Sound card.

    Made these out
    : pc partpicker.c om/p/265zj
    Estimated wattage: 379W and I bought 500W bronze SMPS newly.

    Is the RAM fine?
    Can I go for a lesser mobo?
    Is the 500W supply enough?
    Whether can I go for 6 core (fx-6300) or 8 (fx-8350) (80$ higher, consumes 30W more)?

    Ram- Fine
    Mobo- Fine

    If the estimated wattage is 379 watts, then you're fine with 500.

    Just from personal experience the 8350 rapes the 6300. It'll be one of the best investments you can make in this build.

    , didn't post my answer.
    RAM-ofcourse it's fine
    Mobo-Lesser then which one ? This one should work pretty fine ,but you can go with cheaper Asus M5A97, too, it would work fine.
    PSU-Should be OK, but 600 W would(If you will go with 8350) would be better, just to be on safe side.
    If you get 25$ more, go with Hyper 212 Plus or EVO, as they are a lot quieter then stock cooler.

    You CAN go a bit cheaper on the Mobo, but if you have the funds, I'd stick with your current one.
    RAM, CPU, and GPU all look great.

    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.

    This: ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS - Newegg.com ? Yea I wanna get cheaper board.

    Why is the M5A99X R2.0 Pro costlier ?

    And can I go for
    AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6300WMHKBOX - Newegg.com or the 8-core itself ?
    I think I can save 30W and 80$ from it too.

    Cos I newly bought a corsair 500W bronze recently. I got 1TB HDD + CPU Case

    Your just for you gameplay build right:
    pc partpicker. com/p/21DKJ ?

    The M5A99 has a few extra ports and slots, but nothing really of actual need. You'd be fine with the M5A97, which actually happens to be the board I use on my secondary rig, along with the 6300.

    If you have the money, definitely the 8350.
    Absolutely fantastic processor that spits out a ton of power, is great for the price, and is completely futureproof.

    Pick me a cheaper mobo + case + psu please ?

    I might go for crucial ballistic which is cheap RAM, and no changes to processor and gfx card.
    Can I go for 6300 and reduce the load ? Budget: 600$ (dont want a harddisk)

    Newegg.com - AMD FX-9590 Vishera 4.7GHz Socket AM3+ 220W Eight-Core Desktop Processor - Black Edition FD9590FHHKWOF - I love this processor, however because I used mine for overclocking which some people tend to do I highly suggest you get a water cooling system.

    like the antec khuler 620 or the hyrdo Hi100i for maximum push pull sequence. wouldn't hurt to get more fans too if you want to keep the computer nice and cool + quiet

    this will set you back about 476.98$ or if you get the antec khuler which is just as good if not better it'll cost you it'll cost you a total of $480.53 but I love antec so I went in that direction

    and as most said your modo is good so why change?

    It means that you can remove PSU cables that you don't need.
    Mail rebate ? Some kind of discount, you have to send them coupon..
    Case ? Because it's cheap and good.
    Mobo is OK, small MiniATX, if you don't need more PCI-E ports, etc.,
    No, it isn't must.
