This is a great build, but I really cannot go much over $600.

AMD is a good option if you are doing a budget build. I in fact started with an Athlon X4 760K and later moved onto an FX-8320, and now I am here at Intel. Intel is a definite if your budget supports it, but in this case, you would have to cheap out on other components, driving down performance.

What about drivers. Are they easy to get a hold of?

Oh yeah. If you need help, I can help you. It is on the driver discs. You can update them afterwards. This power supply will make you happy and will not fail on you. Very efficient as well (over 85%). Good luck and I hope all goes well with you!
