I am looking into buying a new PC because my 5 year old beast just doesnt cut it anymore. I will order the parts separatly on the first of december, on cybermonday. This is my first build so I just want to know if I have chosen the best value for money as possible. My budget is a 1000 euros or about 800 pounds.

CPU: AMD fx 6300 black edition
Gpu: Gigabyte gtx 970 g1
Mobo: Asus M5A97 R2.0
HyperX FURY Series 8GB (2x 4GB) DDR3 1866MHz
Psu: EVGA Supernova 650W G1 Gold
Crucial CT256MX100SSD1 256GB MX100
Cpu cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Case: nzxt h440
(I will use the hdd from my previous prebuilt PC so a new one isn't needed)

Will this PC be able to play recent games on decent settings?

Thanks in advance!


Yes, it should, but the PSU is of low quality. I'd actually get something like this:
