  2. In advance I can tell you you can't have a capable gaming computer with an Intel CPU in a low budget as you will necessarily have to get a lower end GPU. With this in mind, here is a suggested AMD build.

    Regarding the video card. What about a solution with the 650ti from nvidia?

    The GTX 650ti is a complete rip off. If you want a cheap gaming card go with the Radeon HD 7790 - definately not the 650ti. But otherwise i would suggest going with the 7870.
    Look at how the 7790 is miles better than the GTX 650ti:

    These are both very good GPU's - the GTX 670 is significantly better though.

    What would be more future proof?
