Additional Comments:
Im a little stuck here. I actually ordered all these parts about 5 hours ago and just cancelled my order :fou: . The reason, was reading the forums and too many people were saying how the i3 out performs these new amd+ cpus.


Here's what I orginally had chosen.

    Fixed! Man, I am having some problems tonight. lol
  5. For your budget, that looks solid to me! I am not entirely sure about the CPU, but I am a noob at AMD CPUs, so I'll leave it be. :P
  6. The i3-2120 DOES perform better. I've also included a better power supply so it doesn't limit the graphics card you get later on as much. I would recommend getting the case I've posted because its of higher quality.
