    I can't comment on the parts (trumpet seems to know best in regards to that), I can refer you to this:

    What screen resolution does your friend game on? Any particular game your friend game mostly on? I cannot give you any recommendation until I know more info.

    That build list you generated has one big problem, the motherboard. You need to understand that FX CPU is power hungry, and that it'll overheat the motherboard if motherboard itself is cheaply made. GA-78LMT-S2P is a cheaply made motherboard. I would look into 900-series motherboard only.

    Would 350W be enough for it? You know more about budget AMD systems than I do.

    Good call. That PSU has this following power rating: [email protected], [email protected]

    If this is a quality single rail 350 W PSU, provided OP doesn't overclock, FX-6300 & GT 640 will work fine. But since Basq 350 split 12V rail into 120 W and 156 W, I'd say it'll work on stock, but close to the limit.

    Yeah I thought it was too close for comfort. Better to find a 450W PSU which should be similarly priced.

    Agreed. My 8320 and GTX 760 take about 400w under Crysis 3.
    (Yes, I did use a Kill-A-Watt.)

    GT 640 is not really good for gaming. You want at least a GTX 650 Ti.

    The key here is gaming resolution. What screen resolution are we talking about? Is it as low as 640 x 480? Is it 1920 x 1080? Or even higher?

    Your resolution determines whether your GPU is up to the task or not.

    GT 640 isn't enough for max 1080p though. GTX 650 Ti minimum, with GTX 660 recommended.

    Biggest bottleneck with GT 640 lies with the fact that it uses DDR3 VRAM as opposed to GDDR5.

    Any time you see a GPU that uses DDR3 VRAM, know that it is entry model GPU.
