I tossed in a FX 6300 6core CPU, full ATX mobo (part of combo deal with FX 6300), and a CM Hyper 212 Plus so you can overclock the thing. Should give you some good performance for a little bit more than your max budget.
That is an fx 6100, not a 6300. I hear AMD's second gen fx series (the 6300) is considerably better than their first gen (6100) and everyone seems to prefer the phenom ii x4 965 over the 6100. Would you still recommend the cpu you listed, and if so, why?
