After not getting much help on others forum I would like to try this one out and see if anybody can give me some criticism on this build I'm trying to do.

I'm trying to stay under $400 for this build, parts that I will be reusing from my old computer are the Power Supply, Graphics card, CD/DVD reader and I have windows 7 to install.

Here is what I came up so far for my build :

PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2SdgG

CPU: AMD FX-6350 3.9GHz 6-Core Processor ($129.99 @ Microcenter)
Motherboard: Asus M5A97 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($44.99)
Memory: Kingston 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($69.99 @ Best Buy)
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($89.89 @ Amazon)
Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7770 1GB Video Card (Purchased For $0.00)
Case: NZXT Source 210 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($29.99 @ Microcenter)
Other: CROSSION Super Speed USB 3.0 Internal Card Reader ($21.99)
Total: $386.84

Comes under $400 , and seems pretty reasonable specs for me to use. Microcenter has a deal that If I buy that CPU I get off $40 off motherboard, which I read about and it seems to be pretty good.

I only do light gaming ( CS:GO, League of legends rarily ).

For future my plan would be to upgrade the CPU cooler to a better one and overclock the CPU, add a second graphics card and crossfire them (or buy 1 better one and that's it). Upgrade RAM in the future too.

Let me know what you guys think of it, and if there are any places that I could improve this build on.
