Hello there. I live in Canada. I already have few pieces i can use. My budjet is 250-350$ but i'd like 300$ or less. The computer i want right now does not need room for further upgrading. I possibly only need Motherboard + CPU + RAM.

My favorite website is newegg.ca but any website with prompt shipping is fine.

Case: Could cut on this one as i already have a (i think) mid tower housing a G31TM-P21(micro motherboard i think) and there's still a bit of room for a bigger motherboard. However if it is inadequate, please suggest away. My current case really suck so please suggest away if there's a case combo deal that would make it really cheap.

CPU:
G850 or i3-3220, from what i read, g850 is best bang for buck but 3220 is much more powerful, is it? If the budjet allow for something better, please do tell.

Motherboard:
Open to suggestion. Only need one pci-e slot for my current GPU. And room for ram:

Ram:
I think i'd need 8gb but if the budjet cut it 16gb would be nice? Something cheap but still decent, maybe something 1600hz since the cpu support that much? (I'm a big multi tasker)

Power Supply:
I have an old TR2-430, it does NOT list the watt on it but i assume its 430w. It feature 2x4pin for motherboard. If it is not adequate, please suggest a new one.

Video Card:
I own a 560 TI, thus no need to include its cost in the budjet.

Hard Drive:
I own some soso hardrive. Storage is not an issue; i'd like a suggestion for a budjet HDD or SSD to buy in a few weeks, too.

Misc:
Whats the good thermal paste to use now? Need some for this computer and an other with which i overclock.

Best solution

I included the 3220, a decent mobo, 8GB of RAM which is more than enough and a pretty good SSD. I think you will like it.

Thank you. After all, there were extra shipping prices, but i went with your suggestions except for the ram, since one of the program i run can take up to 6gb my himself only, i went with 2x8.

Thanks again.
