I've picked out some parts that I'm looking to order and start putting together my first machine. I plan to use it for gaming (play a lot of LoL and want to play counter strike:GO as well without problems) and videos mostly. Just looking for some advice to make it cheaper/faster where possible. I'm really new to the hardware in general so any advice would be welcome. These are the parts I've picked out so far:

Graphics: MSI R7850-2GD5/OC Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
CPU: AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Six-Core Desktop Processor
Fan: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Ram: G.SKILL NS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1 TB HDD SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive
Power Supply: SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Case: Rosewill Gaming ATX Mid Tower Case, Black R5

Just wondering if there is a way to make this cheaper with little difference in performance. Any cheap upgrades with high significance are welcome too. I'm pretty sure all these parts work together. Let me know if there is any more information needed. I'm definitely new and any advice is appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums! I hope you enjoy building as much as I do.

As to your build you did a really good job of fining some top notch products at very good prices. I'm guessing your budget is around the cost of these components. If you can afford any more money, I would recommend you put the money towards the GPU. a 7870 is only a few dollars more.

Hope this helps.
