*bites nails*
This will run -most- games at max settings, except the most demanding games like Crysis 3, but I doubt you were looking for that.

Two suggestions I can make:

Get a different graphics card. HD 7870 can be found around that price, and is much better than the GTX 660. If you can't however, then you can buy that GTX 660.

Buying an FX-6300 means you should be willing to overclock it a bit -- you will want a good third party CPU cooler like CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ EVO.
cool so i got an amazing cpu for cheap :D

ill let ya know how it works once i get and build it

i changed it up a little bit, everything is still ok? all parts will fit and all that fun stuff?

whats the diff between the req windows 8 and the OEM?
Everything looks find. If you want to overclock that FX-6300 though you might want a better motherboard.
i dont even know what overclocking is, sounds like over-running what its suppose to run. in that case, im mainly a twink player so i dont go into those 25 or 40 man raids. if i do happen to do so, ill lower my setting if needed.
