Definitely more GPU. 7950 or 7970 at that budget.

I'd go for 8GB RAM though.

Yes, Thanks for Understanding!
Anyways, Im able to stretch the budget to a I5 3330 and a gt 640

Would this be better? Less of a bottleneck (trying to avoid my i5 660 and Gt 620 Oc'd to 630

Updated parts:

GPU

DVD drive

EDIT, Would this GPU be any better? (I personally dont like Radeon, Heard bad things, But i'll give it a go, Would still like the Gt 640.)

Edit2, Would this case be better then the one im currently planning? (Review says it doesnt fit dual slot cards well)

Any Bad bottleneck?

Im probably going to either go with a gt 640 and Overclock it, or get a 7750, Which do you guys recommend?

Why are you getting everything from memory express. For that price you can get a way better build.

Beacuse, I live in canada, And, Its the closest store to me, And, I do not like buying things online....

EDIT: just picked the parts, And, Most of them are In-store pickup only, So, if i was to buy online, its the same price, But, Its more with shipping..

Not true, online is a lot cheaper and they usually ship for free or they might charge for shipping but it will still be cheaper than in store.

We dont exactly have enough to go over 740$ Thats kinda why im where i am...

@Someone Somewhere, Isnt the I5 4430 still more powerfull then the amd? (I honestly don't like amd, Never really have.)

Sorry if i seem like a pain in the A$$ but, I just like Intel, Should i go with a fx 8320? Wouldn't it be bottlenecked then by the GpU?

Go with a FX 8320 if you want to overclock or do any type of editing ( video, photo, etc). Neither of the CPUs will bottle neck the GPU.

Nothing wrong with AMD's chips, other than power. For gaming the FX-6300 is a great choice; few games now or in the near future will be held back, especially if OCed. Intel does get better at the high end though.

Depends what you're going to do with it. AMD's chips can be OCed, but only the K-SKU Intel chips can and you need a more expensive MB.

I'd suggest this:

Yeah where not doing any Video editing, Just gaming... Not anything high though, This is alot better then my i5 660 with a gt 620 (oc'd 630) (My system can play almost anything, just not well.)

Thanks for the suggestions guys! I will take a look, I just am not that big with the amd's, Were not planning to overclock the cpu, Just the gpu,
