Im also gonna get an fx 6300 with http://www.microcenter.com/product/379475/M5A78L-M_LX_P... *FREE* At microcenter ,there is one near my area .

im gonna use my old dell inspiron 560 ( micro-atx case) and some old power supply i have raidmax hybrid 2 530 w , I know this psu is crap so i wont be overclocking ...

I dont wanna spend alot of money i just want to get the mobo&cpu combo , the gpu and ram i got the rest of the stuff .
Which is the best option for me?
and would there be any compabilitiy issues with this build ?

I play games like CoD , CS:GO , Borderlands 2 , tomb raider. bioshock , etc and maybe ill be playing bf4 and i dont mind playing on med-high settings .

also i heard powercolor rebates are horrible what should i get?

even though powercolor is questionable, go for the 7850, 120 bucks for a 7850 is a very good deal, even at 150 bucks it's still a decent price, and is a very strong mid ranged card that can handle all of those games at decent settings

Well I think 150dllrs$ is not a good price for a 7850 considering it was 80 dllrs not long ago and that the 270 is 20$ more i was considering this cause it has 30 MIR but ive been hearing horrible things about powercolor and how ppl never got their rebate back

Since Prices are going up its a bit harder to recommend cards right now.

I personally would go for the 2GB 7850. Not only is it a better performing card, 2GB has become the norm for modern games in the last year in terms of frame buffer.

I've never seen it at 80 dollars before, the lowest was at about 100 dollars near the holiday time. And in today's environment, 120 dollars is a good price, since everything is expensive atm

Another alternative is the R7 260x, which is the 7790 rebadge

7850 Hands down. Hardly a comparison. You can max out BF3 at 1080p on that card.
