I'm working on my first gaming rig; it'll be a budget rig priced at or (preferably) under $550 without peripherals. Here's the build template I'm working with: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/uvVZ . The only thing set in stone is the 7850 and I'm 90% sure I want the i3 (no AMD because I dont want to overclock and may Hackintosh in the future), but everything else is from a recommended build I found on reddit.
What I basically want are components that are cheat but that aren't absolute garbage. What that means is the case should cost about $50 at max, the mobo ~$60, and the RAM to be fairly cheap as well (is ~$35 a good price point?).
