This would be much better for gaming. If you can increase the budget $15 more you can get a R7 260x.

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:

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

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