Total: $691.95

If you need to cut down price to 600 then get an i3
If you need to cut down price even more then get HD 7850

i3 with hd 7850 is ALOT better than A10-5800k LOL

And the i5 with 7870 is EXTREMELY good compared to the A10-5800k.

Have fun!

lol what a douche.

If you are gonna mock my suggestion at least do it with an equally priced build.

And no the i3 is not a lot better than the 5800k, you must really like intel.

I wasn't trying to mock you. Just trying to save someone from spending $500-$700 and only getting an apu.
And for a similar priced build:
