I want to keep in that price range, or lower if possible. PC is primarily for gaming but also animation and video editing. Note this is first build. If possible If anyone can find better parts (cheaper) that would be great. The games I will be playing on this range from dayz, farcry 3 and battlefield 3. Additional things will be added later.
I agree on the 7850, easily one of best bang for cards right now.
If you can't afford it, cut the 'K' CPU, and that should lend an extra 30$ to the video card
Of course, if your that desperate...
Well I'll really know when Christmas comes around, i have around 400 dollars now, and I usually get around 400-500 from friends and family. I all depends on how much I get. I really like the built hazle sent me.
