  1. I'm not the biggest AMD fan around here but the 975 is a slightly better choice than the FX-4100.

    And then instead of the GTX 550TI - go for the GT640 - it's the lowest end Keppler card you can get but it's a far better choice than the 550TI:
  2. Could do better especially better than the 550 Ti.

    Slightly over your budget. But I can guarantee well worth it.

    That's not even including the performance kick IVB (Ivy Bridge) gets.
    Plus you'll get the 6870 in my build
