    total: 1085 before MIR.

    you could get a cheap MOBO one for like 90 bucks, cheaper case for about 60, no CPU cooler, 8gb of ram, a decent PSU 550w would do and save around 300 bucks off this build and have a good PC and definately stay in your budget.
  6. keep in mind im not on a set budget and this is an AMD themed gaming PC, like one last hoorah for AMD and stuff. Just something im going to build and put on youtube.
