FM2+ computer build

My brother wants me to build him a computer to play Minecraft. I already have a 64 gb ssd, a case, fm2+ motherboard, 8gb of ddr3 1600 mghz single channel ram, and a 400 watt power supply. What would be sufficient for a cpu/gpu/apu?

  1. What's the budget for those parts? Oh and don't forget you also need a hard drive.
  2. Right now he is only using 40gb on my laptop. Budget as little as possible but about 150$ish. also this pc is running ubuntu.
  3. For minecraft you don't need much. But I would have to guess he will want to move on and play better and more graphically intensive games in the future (Battlefield; Crysis; etc.). If you don't have a budget I would recommend the GTX 770 2 GBhttp://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=981964&gclid=Cj0KEQjw0POdBRCq3arGgYD05pMBEiQAmiUeToP0BMTdGeBOOMr1Q4q4Je8Rlo3nf2IrxpXotwPMYj8aAnfh8P8HAQ&is=REG&A=details&Q=and the AMD A10-7850k Kaveri http://www.neweggbusiness.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9B-19-113-359&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleBiz&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleBiz-_-pla-_-Processors+-+Desktops-_-9B-19-113-359&ef_id=S8s0o0NIYWUAAFesKYUAAAEA:20140709220310:s&gclid=Cj0KEQjw0POdBRCq3arGgYD05pMBEiQAmiUeTiWsvrO36nGAQzQP1YXkZ7-VHlY6ED52vNXrxiMEI9IaAl5F8P8HAQ If you do have a budget and will only really play minecraft in this computer's lifetime then go for a Radeon R7 270 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127769&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-Desktop+Graphics+Cards-_-N82E16814127769&ef_id=S8s0o0NIYWUAAFesKYUAAAEA:20140709223708:s&gclid=Cj0KEQjw0POdBRCq3arGgYD05pMBEiQAmiUeTsal0Ekhs90r6q3XDdxu1YMYrbUQBp29_XQtv9QedqYaAr5J8P8HAQ and the AMD A8 series A8-6600K https://www.google.com/shopping/product/18241168883254604751?q=cheap+FM2%2B+cpu&client=safari&rls=en&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.70138588,d.aWw,pv.xjs.s.en_US.4GTBzt8SUZ8.O&biw=1280&bih=624&tch=1&ech=1&psi=N8S9U9HqLM6tyATT4oCoCA.1404945464904.5&ei=T8S9U9XXD5SeyATk-4KQDQ&ved=0CL4EEKYrMAI
