Hey guys, I was just suggested a build. What I am looking for is a gaming comp that will be able to run me good games (Overwatch, GTA V, etc.) on high graphics pretty fast (Atleast 40 fps). I also want this thing to last me a long time, preferably many years. Is this a good build for me? Feel free to suggest other, better builds. Thank you!

Single channel memory and a micro-ATX board in a ATX case without USB 3.0 ports and no intake fans and a 500W power supply for a R9 380? Nah...

Why not go for a Skylake build with DDR4 and a better case with better cooling? Also a next step up power supply.

I would recommend all the changes that Pawacorn made, and a few more. A slightly cheaper case, to try and bring it back to your budget of 620ish. A better value mobo, performance and system longevity shouldn't be affected. different SSD, simply because I haven't heard or read much about the Z400 so I won't put it in a build I recommend, but I'm sure it's a fine SSD. A different HDD for the same reason.
