I didn't read a single word. The answer is yes. Round peg, round hole.

I'm not saying that any of that is sane because you seem to have your mind set and you'll buy what you want no matter what. If you posted this in the correct section (help me build/buy), I'd call you fucking nuts. I can give you the same performance with many other suggestions. Mind you, it won't be AMD stuff and current. Intel kind of did this more than 4 years ago, you don't need 16G memory, you have no SSD...and just picking parts randomly.

It's a correct placement if you want me to blow up on you with deep discussions. You're way off if you want me to help with build/buy because that's another section; it's hard to miss. I think you have a deepthroat build. It's more than "stinks" and swallows the entire thing without asking. You need 16G of memory like you need a hole in the head.

You're biased and an Intel i3 would be more than fine, iGPU and all. An HD4000 iGPU would be better than a discrete GTS 630 and you also get an actual CPU to do work. This place is about technical discussions on hardware and we have a section all about building and planning.

There's 10 types of people that understand this: The 1's that do and the 0's that don't.

While AMD does have some decent options, I wouldn't say that FX4300 is one of them. the FX6300 is barely any more, and packs a lot more power. Priced to compete against the i3, it actually does favorably.

fx4300- 3.8-4.0GHz, 2x2MB L2, 4MB L3
fx6300- 3.5-4.1GHz, 3x2MB L2, 8MB L3

If you can't spare the $20 difference, cut the motherboard down from 990FX, to a 970.

That video card wont do much. I don't know the purpose of this build, so should I assume, gaming isn't a priority given that video card?
If it IS - a 650 is much more powerful.

That one is $100 and has a $20 rebate.

For the memory - if you get the newegg deal of 15% off, making it $93.50 then great. If not, don't worry about 1866MHz memory. 1600MHz is fine, especially when you're not spending for performance CPU/GPU.

What's the point of that keyboard? Start your build questions with a purpose so others can tailor recommendations to your needs.
