Newegg shopping cart is different depending on which account you are logged into so your account has your shopping cart but when we click the link it shows our shopping carts.

Thanks but I am really trying to bring the price down to $650, and i don't want to sacrifice my gpu, so wouldn't an a5 or a6 cpu be good. There isnt that big of difference in ghz and they are all quad core. So is there any build under $650 that will let me run BF3 at med settings and CS:GO at Ultra? Also i need a wireless pci card, since my router isnt near by.

The Ax series of AMD are AM2 processors and are not that good for gaming. I actually upped your GPU from 7750 to 7770.

This is about the best you are going to do for $650 for the entire rig (monitor and OS).

Yeah, using an A-whatever with a graphics card is pointless - the entire selling point of the A-series APUs is that they're slower processors, but they come with good quality integrated graphics - enough to do light gaming or rendering with.
