1. Canada currency?
2. Will you overclock?
3. Do you need monitors, keyboard, mouse, wireless card, sound card?

I can overclock (make sure you add proper cooling)
I got a 1680x1050 monitor i will be using, not going to upgrade to 1080p.
Dont need wireless card,accessorys or soundcard

I like the idea of building this to your strengths. since you plan on getting another gpu later but already have a 6670, it seemed a no brainer to get an A10. This way you can game out of the box, maybe do some dual graphics and squeeze a bit more out of that old gpu. The A10 benches quite well against an i3, so when you replace the 6670 you'll still have a capable quad core cpu, on a platform that has some life left into it, if say you want a cpu upgrade in the future.

additionally the price of an A10 is such, you can get yourself an SSD and enjoy the joys of great load times.

because he's spending 200 of your 650 on the cpu, he doesn't really have a lot of wiggle room on components. the A10 seemed like a no brainer when you consider you wanted an SSD and already had a 6670

I didn't know what to take off for the SSD. What GPU did you have in mind? Maybe you don't need the Intel Core i5-3570K CPU. As for the HDD, I mistakenly clicked the wrong Add button. It was up one.

@ingtar33: but if OP will upgrade in a month, the A10-5800K will be downplaying it.

true enough. i took his "maybe a month or more later" to mean "when i can spend the money"... so i was building with a more nebulous upgrade schedule in mind.

if we assume he's upgrading the gpu in a month... the no brainer would be this build.

Not really junky. But yes, a Asus M5A97 R2.0 would be a better pick. :)
