New budget PC gaming build.

Hey guys, I've got a list for a budget gaming PC build, used to take on not too much, mate some WoW and a few modern games, but nothing too heavy.

880GM-LE-FX - $62
2G GTX 650 Gigabyte N650OC - $159
AM3+ x4 FX-4100 - $112
8G Kit 1600 G.Skill Ripjaws-X - $44
A-Power Mars-M2-3025 - $30
Hitachi Deskstar 7200rpm 500G - $63
Total: $470

(All the prices are from MSY)

Anyway, I live in Australia so all the parts are from MSY. I know the case is a bit crappy but I had the same one (Includes PSU) And it lasted me a while.(But now I have an Antec 900). Anyway I was also wondering if it would be worth swapping the FX-4100 for an i3-3220 with a new motherboard. Let me know if I should. Leave your thoughts and suggestions on the build below, but please keep in mind I really have to keep it close the original price.

Feedback is appreciated, thanks in advance!

  1. Get the i3.
    Your GPU is overpriced for its performance. The even cheaper 7770 gives more.
    RAM is fine.
    HDD is fine.
    A generic PSU is bad. You're risking your components frying.
  2. Yeah true, that way I can swap for a better PSU.
    Thanks
  3. Quote:
    definately go i3 or a10

    The a10 and i3 are virtually the same price, so i3 or a10? Cheers
  4. If you're saving up for a good GPU, get the a10. The integrated graphics is more powerful.
