    This would be much better for gaming. If you can increase the budget $15 more you can get a R7 260x.
  2. What type of gaming are you thinking about doing? Battlefield 4 and similar games or casual web-based games? Also, what is your maximum budget?

    If you can stretch your budget to about $520, then I suggest getting this combo: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=8564588&csid=_61

    AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core CPU
    Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 MB
    8GB DDR3 1600 Patriot Viper Xtreme Memory
    1TB WD Blue SATA HDD
    Cougar Solution Steel Gamer Case w/750W PSU Barebones

    It's definitely a gaming rig, check it out.
