This is my current build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/GWbVMv

I'm building around the RX580 because I've gotten a good price for it. This pc is only used for gaming and I'd also like to upgrade my ram from 8gb to 16gb. Budget is loose but getting the best bang for my buck is the goal.

If for whatever reason you can't see the part list I posted it below:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1045T 2.7 GHz 6-Core Processor
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Memory: Kingston Blu Red Series 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) DDR3-1600 CL9 Memory
Memory: Kingston Blu Red Series 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) DDR3-1600 CL9 Memory
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 500 GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: Asus Radeon RX 580 8 GB DUAL Video Card
Case: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: Corsair CX 600 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit

I'm thinking of going with this setup, but if anyone could point out a weakness or problem it would be appreciated.

Budget?
Those cheap boards usually do not have good VRM for adequate thermal performance.
Ideally I'd like to stay within 500 usd for the Mobo, ram and cpu but with prices these days I don't know if thats a reasonable expectation.

I'm willing to spend a little more to reduce the likelyhood of having to replace parts. If I can set myself up so that my next big upgrade would just be a GPU that'd be great.

If you are in US, this should be better...
