Need help! I am trying to build my first gaming pc!

-amd fx4300
-asus radeon r9 270
-Aywun A1-102 Micro ATX case with 420W PSU
-MSI H81M-P33 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
-A-Data XPG V1.0 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

ps. I still unsure what storage I should get. This pc will mostly be used for gaming (dota2) anyway so I dont really need a huge storage so any suggestions would be helpful! oh and the wifi parts too are needed

Those parts look fine, for storage, get any 1tb hard drive that's cheap and then, if you want to, you can upgrade to an SSD later on.

Here's an intel option but the AMD one you've selected looks good too:

Oh sorry - I haven't slept for a while D:

For the PSU, I'd go for the corsair cx430 rather than the one from the case but otherwise currently you look good to go.

I'll have a look tomorrow once I've slept and get back to you :)

If you are not a hardcore gamer then stick with HDD only any size you wish.
But if you want to play games like BF4,dying light, or Far cry 4 then install an SSD(64gb or above) as SSD give huge performance increment. But also make sure that SSD are very very costly.

I now have the hard drive. My only problem now is a compatible motherboard for my amd which is similar to the motherboard I listed here.
