Budget Gaming PC build suggestions

Hi all,
I recently built a reasonably high end gaming PC to great success, and am really enjoying it. However, I split my time fairly evenly between two homes. Here's the dilemma, it is very inconvenient to transport my reasonably large PC and monitor between houses. So, I am in search for a new, fairly budget gaming PC within the 800-1000 dollar range AU. I would like it to be able to handle some light rendering tasks in programs such as auto desk revit and inventor. For this I believe intel CPU's may be better, however I am not biased and am quite happy with my amd fx-8350, so whatever performs the task best is fine by me.I would like it to be either mitx or matx in form factor, however i understand that mitx is rather expensive. In this budget I need everything, a monitor, OS, keyboard and full PC components.I also need a decent wifi solution.My preferred store is Umart, however feel free to use PC part picker as Umart prices and generally slightly better anyway.
Finally the games I will be playing will be Battlefield 4, skyrim, the witcher ect. I am quite happy to play these games at medium to high settings. Also games such as minecraft and COD4 will also be frequently played.
Thank you to everyone who answers, I really appreciate your time and effort.
Haigz.

For $800-$1000AUD will be pretty difficult to build pc with all the peripherals and OS. You are looking at a bigger budget.
Plus there aren't any good mATX motherboard for the newer Vishera/Piledriver CPUs like the: FX 4300, FX 6300 and FX 8300 series. Yes, the mATX motherboards are labeled as AM3+ but they use an old 760G chipset, which is not very good for the AMD X3XX series
If you want mATX build, you will have to get Intel one, since their mATX motherboard support is better.

For your budget, you can get something like this, but the i3 will be weak in the rendering applications that you use.

I expected as much, i was thinking about the core i3 4130 with a h81 matx board. I am not planning on pushing games to the max on this thing, so i assume the i3 will be fine at running games at medium settings.Also I think the R9 270 gpu fits my needs as it seems to be pretty good value for money. I'll post a build i created in a minute and you helpful people can tell me if it's good :)

Can you please post the link? Heres one ive made, i would only get the cx500m not the cx600m, i would also get the coolermaster n200 case. also Umart has prices slightly cheaper than pcpartpicker so the build ill post is slightly over budget.

Thanks heaps, that looks like a really solid budget build. would you recommend a hyper 212 evo or something of the like. I really hate stock coolers because they are so loud.

I don't think there is enough space for Hyper 212Evo, maybe the smaller brother, the Hyper TX 3 Evo will fit.

AMD would definitely stretch your budget and fit your purposes well. But as Maurelie said, a mATX system is going to be very hard to build. There aren't many good boards for AMD in this form factor.

Have you considered a small case or maybe a mid-size case with a handle? This would usually allow pretty much any ATX board and make carrying it easier.

Thank you all, i've decided to save up a little bit more to accommodate the R9 270 and a decent mechanical keyboard and mouse. Just one quick question, would the fx 6300 offer any real performance advantage over the i3. If so i am willing to go atx in size. Although here in Australia, the fx 6300 is roughly the same price but the motherboards are more expensive and so are decent atx cases. I only really needed to go matx to save money.

Both of them will trade blows in different scenarios.

Pros for i3 4130
-Better Single Core Performance
-Lower power consumption
-Better motherboard(meaning, using h81,b85 or h87, will have better path to upgrade to i5 or i7)

Cons of i3 4130
-Worse multithreaded performance
-Locked Processor

Pros of FX 6300
-Better Multi Core performance
-Unlocked Processor
-Games in future may utilize all of its cores, therefore better performance.

Cons for FX6300
-Higher power consumption
-Worse Single Core Performance
-Upgrade path with the same motherboard, FX 8320/FX 8350

It is a tough one :)
