Why do you have only a 250 GB HD?: Don't need the extra space.

  1. Best answer
    Might as well go with the cheaper FM2+ platform for the improved Richland memory controller on the Athlon 760K.
  2. That should work OK. But I'd get a better power supply eg Seasonic 520, XFX 550 or Antec HCG 520M

    Also - Look at Tom's - http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/build-your-own-budg... but you'd probably have to drop to a gtx760 to get within budget.

    and look at other $700 builds
