G3220 GTX 750 TI or I3 4130 GTX 650? I will be playing all sorts of games, probably not any that are too graphics intensive. Other alternatives are appreciated. Build as it is: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/F7vPgs

if its either, either, then I would personaly take the pentium and 750 TI... you could go with that i3 though, with r9 260x (same performance as 750ti)....

and you need 2 sticks of memory for it to work properly (dual channel)... 2 x 4gb

Pcper.com had a recent post on a combination of cheap builds. The G3220+750ti build benched very well. The 750ti is much better than the 650.

wait for the new pentium chips that launch on the 1st of july. even with the stock cooler you can probably push an extra GHz or two out of it and it will give you the option to overclock down the road. i would either take the r7 260x or on newegg right now i believe there is a 7850 from power color for 99$ which is a steal. so if your USA go that route.

that power color card on newegg is in the open box section i can link if you need it

Dog has good advive. You are getting Z87 mobo. Wait for the new G3258. It's unlock so you can overclock with your mobo.

Well, I was looking for high upgradeability for the future, but also be able to play games solidly until I can upgrade on my birthday or something. Thanks for the advice though.

if you get this motherboard and wait a little and get the pentium g3258 then its good enough... you wont need to upgrade cpu wise... just get a good cooler, overclock it, and it will be as good as i5 in games...

if you are planning to upgrade then just get a hard drive, you can buy an SSD for your convinience later.

depending on what you want to upgrade to in the future, I might suggest you get a simple gtx 750 (not the ti), and get something stronger down the line... although depends on what do you want... 750ti can get you high graphic settings in BF4... so if you only want minecraft then its not a problem...
