Help With a Strict Budget Build Mainly for Gaming


Dec 16, 2014
Im on a very strict budget build as i don't want to go over 540$, I know for 100% I know I want a FX-6300 for a CPU and a r9 270 for a graphics card. I understand that combination is a bit spendy but keep in mind that I will get a free 550W Power Supply and windows 7.1 for Free, Thank you to everyone who helps me in advance.

EDIT: Keyboard/Mouse/OS/Monitor Not needed.
You have already build your system anyways at your budget you can get better so here is a build without OS and PSU(Hope the 550 watt PSu you are getting is good quality one)
