AMD fx 6300

Nvidia gtx 960

1 tb WD Blue

8 gb patriot viper ddr3 ram

Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P

AW C804 case

500 w 80 plus bronze crtified Raidmax Cobra RX-500AF-B

 

If you have better idea please let me know

Try getting an i3, would perform better in games; also a 380 4GB would be better. I've never really heard of that PSU brand so I don't know if it is trustable?

And, if your budget allows it, an SSD would be nice.

This ^

Just need a HDD, 120 GB would be enough for 1.5 new games :P

I wouldn't touch an AMD FX CPU in this day and age. The single threaded performance is just too low and the expensive motherboards/coolers that the high TDP CPUs require make the platform too expensive to make sense price to performance wise, even in cheap builds. Only the X4 860k makes sense, and you are above that price range.

Do you have any reusable parts from your old PC? Like HDD, RAM, case etc?  If you do, could save a lot by using them (and dealing with whatever case you have).

in my opinion this is spending too much on the cpu and not enough on the graphics card. i say this because (amusing he is gaming) all he needs is a (current) quadcore and would greatly beneficent from the extra money in the graphics card

The build you quoted as having a too expensive CPU contains the cheapest Quad Core CPU that doesn't have crappy single-threaded performance. The i5-4460 is the cheapest good gaming CPU in existence right now that can play most any game well enough without a bottleneck. It's by far and away the best choice bar none. To say otherwise would require ignorance of the current demands games place on CPUs and/or ignorance of current CPU performance.

Just to please you ;) I still think my other build is better though.

Actually, in benchmarks the i3 6100 outperforms the i5 2500K at stock speeds, and it's quite a bit cheaper, so...there is that option too.

That CPU's multi-threaded performance isn't sufficient for some modern games and it's only going to get worse. That just comes with the territory of being a dual core, albeit with hyper threading. Hell it's getting to the point where I've started recommending the bump to the i5-4590 because the extra clock speed matters more and more for the higher multi-threaded (and single threaded) performance, but that's a bit outside this build's budget.

There is one thing that going that route will provide, though - an upgrade path for newer hardware. The OP can get an i5 later on when he wants if the i3 proves to be a significant enough bottleneck later on.

And besides - one of the benefits with going Skylake is improved core performance. Though, if the OP favours full on performance here and now, the 4460 will be more than viable. I'm just of the opinion that going with an i3 for a new entry-level build for gaming is more of an investment.

Considering gaming builds usually go unchanged except for a GPU swap every two years or so, I'd highly disagree with that assessment. Also, replacing that i3 will waste over a hundred dollars all for the end-result of maybe 10-15% performance improvement over the i5-4460. Plus, the R9 380 4GB doesn't struggle with any game out if you're willing to not max settings, assuming Bethesda gets their shit together with Fallout 4. Basically what I'm saying is the i5 is the better platform now and for the future because the next step after the R9 380 is the R9 390 and that doesn't pair well with an i3 as you'll be bottlenecked by the dual core. It just doesn't make sense.
