what specs would you recommend? should I get the AMD A8-5600k or the FX-6300? or other recommendations? :)

What components do you already have and where do you plan on purchasing the components? Does this budget also require OS costs to be included?

No, it does not require the costs of the OS.I am starting from scratch, so I don't have any parts yet. I am actually buying the parts here on the Philippines, and the prices here are synonymous to those of Newegg's , so I would go for Newegg's pricelist. :)

Does this mean you need mouse, keyboard, and monitor as well?

A friend of mine has a A10-58k Trinity. I gotta say it has a impressive performance for the money: playing BF3 without a dedicated vid card its kind of sureal.

I'm building myself an A10 system later on for my business, I gotta kill sometime while "working" :)

what resolution will u be playing at 7850 is a good card but if u play at 720p it will be a bit overkill a 650 ti will be more than capable for playing any released game

I would be using a 23" monitor what would you recommend? should I go for the 7850 or 650? or I should use a much bigger screen? we also have a 32" screen , IDK what to use :0

The 23" screen should be running at 1080P so I would definitely try to squeeze in the 7850 if you can.

That 7850 might need more power, I suggest to get 500 watts, opposed to 430 watts
