Yeah should beat the consoles no problem. With consoles it is just easy of use. Doing any game at 720p on a PC is easy these days but have to know what you are doing with a computer. Looks like a good solid build.

Up the PSU, else a very good budget gaming rig, go easy with such a small SSD, I started with a 256SSD and 2 months later dug deep for a HyperX 1TB

Re: FX-6300 Budget Gamer

You're good to go with that.  I have 2 similar builds to what you've posted, and they both run most games at high or better at 1080p. 

Consoles run recent games at what would be considered "medium" settings.  So basically, around an R7 260x or an 750 non-Ti roughly.  A 6300 + a 270x will handily beat consoles soundly.  Hell, even a 750Ti or an R7 265 will slightly beat consoles.

Nice build for $600. That FX-6300 will serve nicely
