With the money saved get a better psu and a better video card. For what you want to do you don't need a quad core, but a dual core is enough. A better video card will do you better in games than a quad core as games are more gpu intensive.

Whatever you do, do NOT (strictly, DO NOT!!!) get that Logisys PSU.  Avoid all Logisys PSUs, pretty much.  None of them are suitable for modern PC builds!  Not even low end APU builds or Athlon II x2 builds with integrated graphics builds, at least in my experience.  I powered up a Logisys "480W" (200W actually considering 12V rail voltage) with an Athlon II x2 and integrated 880G system, and the 12V rails were out of spec (12.6V+) out of the box.
DON'T trust a Logisys PSU.


For this budget, an A8 APU quad core + HD 6550D graphics would be best IMO.  Be sure to pair it with DDR3-1600 though or you will be bottlenecking your APU.  DDR3-1600 actually costs less right now, the cheapest 2x4GB RAM kit on Newegg at $30 is a DDR3-1600.  A big step up in binning and overclockability from generic DDR3-1333 CL9 memory.  On the 2x2GB side, $25 for generic G.Skill DDR3-1333 CL9 memory is a ripoff.  You can get DDR3-1600 memory for the same price, or get the same generic memory with the same lifetime warranties (different brand... but really, being generic memory, what's the difference?) for less price.

Very Helpful, but will the 6550D be equivalent to in between a 6450 and 6570? Or will it be less? The RAM deal you said I will diffidently take up, and as long as the 6550D is powerful enough for some gaming, I will take that up too. Thanks.

Stay away from that Logisys PSU. It's a piece of garbage. The 550 wattage is the maximum peak it can deliver, though I have my doubts it can reach that high safely. The continual power delivery will be much lower. That is of course if it doesn't explode first taking your hardware with it. If you need a cheap PSU please just spend a little extra for an Antec or Corsair. A 400 watt quality PSU will deliver more power than that cheap 550 watt PSU.

One of these Antec's or the Corsair mentioned earlier would be much better than that Logisys.

Also that motherboard may be adequate for a stock dual-core, but DO NOT try to run a quad-core on it. It will blow up.

How is this mobo for the A8

I can't find the power on it... or any other ones in my price range...

There's still a few GPU options that perform better than a 5570 for <$70, just make sure whatever PSU you do end up with can handle these:
