Gaming/Dev Build -Will it work?

  OliverSteptoe 11:35 28 Dec 2014

Hi Everyone! I'm about to buy components for my first build. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated but most crucially, if it will work :) The plan is for a fairly high performance gaming/game dev rig on a budget of about £500-£600.

Current planned components are:

CPU: AMD FX-6300 Black (OC with liquid cooler in the future maybe)

MOBO: Asus M5A78L-M

RAM: HyperX Fury 2x 4GB (1866MHz)

CPU Cooler: Zalman CNPS5X Performa

PSU: Corsair builder series CXM 500W Modular

HDD: WD Caviar Blue 1TB (I'll add an SSD at a later date)

Case: Sharkoon MA-M1000

GPU: Palit Nvidia GeForce GTX 970

OS: Ubuntu & Windows dual boot

Cheers, Ollie´╗┐
