So I have $400 to build a computer for gaming. I don't need a videocard. I would prefer a new amd fx cpu and an ssd. Can anyone help?

do you have to have an fx chip? an i3 would be a better choice.

i would prefer to have a quad core so that it will perform better in cpu intensive tasks..

You said this will be a gaming computer. Most games use only one or two cores. Are you doing video editing?

Yeah, I will probably use it for gaming only. Well what about an a10-5800k?

That cpu isn't really worth it as far as gaming is concerned. I would just go with an i3 and upgrade to an i5 or i7 later.

3220 for sure. the 3225 just has a better integrated GPU but since you have a dedicated GPU they will both be the same. I will put something together for you real fast. Do you need an OS? also could you please fill out the form at the top of the SYSTEMS page so I can help you to the best level possible? thanks.
