First of all, the PSU is a ripoff (no good-minded person would pay that much for a ~$430W! There are modular 550-650W PSUs with great quality for less than that!)
Second of all, the case is also not very good for price (look for the NZXT Source 210, it ousts the Antec 300 in features for a lower price of $40 shipped)

Thirdly, why this much is being allocated for the case and PSU is ridiculous on a build that will never need more than a good 350W PSU.  You might as well take that money and put it towards better hardware.
Fourthly, the budget.... ugh...... you can configure a perfectly good AM3+ Phenom II x4/FX-4100 + HD 7770, 6870 or better for the same price.  A8 APU builds are really more suited for $400-500 budgets and for people who may prefer power efficiency over huge graphics horsepower.

Very valid points here XD.

Could you help me configure a better more balanced rig?

I would much appreciate it. I am doing as much (or little) research as I can but to be real honest I am just SUPER busy with everything right now.

I am about to read into the AM3+ 's configs a bit more.

Thank all of you guys so much.

Thank all of you guys so much.

you might not be able to overclock the following system but the performance is best for its price buddy
if you are spending 550$ on a rig then
480
Hitachi 500GB Hard Drive 49$
Total 538$
Hope you like it thumb.gif

I am going to go ahead and order the BEST GPU I can for an APU and test that out. I did just order this rig as well, for an HTPC XBMC IceFilm build a friend wants me to do.


http://www.newegg.com/Special/ShellShocker.aspx?cm_sp=ShellShocker-_-836976-_-02212012_1

It is a total Craptastic build. But its $229! Who cares. Its IDEAL for what they want. I am going to test it with both an HD 7750 and whatever the best dual graphics/hybrid card is I seriously forget right now my brain is buried in Java and C# and the wedding and all sorts of other things.

I really do appreciate all the help you guys.


If the amount of work I am getting is any indication of the economy I would have to say that there is no stopping this comeback now, at least not in Cali thumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gif gObama 2012! Hahaha JK of course thumbsupsmiley.png
