    Hello everyone I'm decently new here and I'm thinking of building my first gaming PC around the Christmas holiday. I have around a $500 dollar budget. I have decided on a PC I found on youtube called Orion by TechSource. Here's a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_15dUbpaOA. The parts are as follows:
    Cpu: FX-8320 CPU
    MotherBoard:MSI 760GMA-P34
    RAM: Crucial Ballistix 8GB (4x2)
    Hard Drive: Im going to reuse the one in my laptop that im typing this with :)
    GPU: Sapphire R9 270X
    Case: Cougar Spike PC Case
    PSU: EVGA 500W Bronze PSU
    I want to play games like H1Z1, all Blizzard games, and others. Is this a good build for the price?

    I can't really say much about the motherboard or Cpu since I have no experience with AMD cpu's. But besides that I would say that your setup seems reasonable and I would belive that it will run the most of the games on decent graphics.

    Looks decent for $500. Although if it's your first build I would recommend doing research and building your own rig based on parts YOU choose. A great site is https://pcpartpicker.com/ . It is great for finding deals, and notifying you if any parts are not compatible with each other.

    I quickly made a $500 build and came up with this http://pcpartpicker.com/p/wxFB3C . Do you have an operating system you can use? If not those buggers are around $100 if you want a legit copy.

    Have fun with it :D

    If you haven't done so already, you should also get people over on the buildpc section on reddit to review your build.
