I agree you should drop the SSD and:
-For CPU cheap out and get a Phenom II x4 or pay up and get an i3 or FX-4300. (The 6100 is NOT good)
-Drop the 650 Ti and get a 7850.
-If you have ti just get 4 GB of ram to do what I said, do it! You still only need 4, and you can get the other 4 whenever you want...
the 6100 isn't an APU. An APU is only for super low budget builds that cannot afford a proper GPU. The i3 will be better in gaming and give a better upgrade path. If you wanted to, you could go with a 6300 and it would be marginally better than the i3, but I would just recommend you stick with an i3 for gaming.
When it comes to gaming the ratio is about 10% CPU and 90% GPU.
i3 is scaring me dont really want to go there, why is everybody intel? not complaining just really confused into why an i3 is going to be better than a 3.9hz haha, and im unsure with the ssd, just quick boot times are appealing to me a bit much for liking
Yes an i3 and a 7950 will run rings around an i7 and a 7770. All about the GPU.
An i3 will blow away a 6100 in gaming any day just based on cpu alone. The reason for this is games not being coded for more than 2 cores. An i3 is many times better on a per core basis than a 6100 and will win every time.
I have an i3 and a 7870 and I love it. The cpu never lags behind and does everything I need it to without a hiccup.
