An Intel G620 would be a much better CPU to use for gaming. The only point in that AMD apu is for its good graphics chip, otherwise its a piece of crap.

Honestly, you should really start learning more about the current hardware out there before posting anymore threads. Its very clear that you just don't know enough.

the A3400 is not good for gaming at all you will need at least the A8-3870 (+$60 on the ibuypower site)

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-fx-pentium-a...

when I ran the iBuyPower AMD A-Series APU system configurator I came up with $642 for the config you show above. though it advertises starting at $419, but the basic config shows $499 before adding the HD 7750 and the 600W PSU.

I ran a similar system through the CyberpowerPC configurator based on a i3 2120 chip and h61 MB. March madness gets you a free upgrade from a Radeon 7750 to a 7770. overall this is a better budget gamer for the money $554. if you bump the PSU up to 500w or 600w its $22/26 more. I dropped the liquid cooling as you don't need it an i3.

you will be much happier with the performance of an i3 and a HD 7770.

You can't build it via newegg for this pirce and you don't have to worry about DOA's and such.
