Don't see a video card in there, you linked the mb/cpu combo twice.

Don't see a gpu. If you're going to use integrated graphics, need to look at AMD A-series apus.

Edit: at that budget i think you'll have to go apu.

Yeah i was thinking about using integrated graphics but i can easily go to under $400 and GPU?

i've heard that Intel i3 integrated graphics were pretty good?

That integrated won't get you any gaming other than facebook or something made in the 90's. Your budget and gaming don't really equal out. If I only had $300 to spend on gaming and couldn't spend anymore, I'd probably buy a console. You'll be dissapointed trying to game at that budget.

Do not go for the APU. This build is much better for your budget of under 400 dollars.

+ 8GB RAM
+ Quad Core CPU
+ 7770 Ghz Edition Graphics Card
+ Good XFX 80 Plus Bronze PSU
+ Better looking case with better airflow

This is more powerful than the PS3 and Xbox 360 but soon the PS4 would launch for 400 dollars. If you can wait for that then definitely go for that one instead as it would be much powerful but then you would have to spend more on games wheras the steam is much cheaper.

Conclusion :
1. If you can wait for the PS4 then get that instead.
2. If you cannot wait for the PS4 then get this build instead. It is also a very good build for the budget.

I hope this helps. I would never recommend an APU however for anything more than 300 dollars budget.
