I threw this together for a friend on PCPartPicker... he needs the computer and one monitor, nothing else. Let me know what you think.

What is the computer being used for?

Ah, apologies. Light gaming, like League of Legends. General use otherwise.

Sounds like a decent configuration to me. If there is a local microcenter around you/your friend I would check what they have in open boxes as sometimes you can get some really awesome items for a great price.

That is a very dated socket, do not invest in that. Go with an 1155 i3 or even Pentium Dual core. League of legends is single threaded. A 7850 is way too much, The onboard on my old 880G mobo could max LoL. I would go with a 7770, and get a cheaper PSU, like a Capstone 450W or something. Get a SSD as well.

I would definitely go with a Pentium G850/G860 over that i3 thumb.gif It will perform better in just about all uses and isn't a dead socket.

AMD would be far better at that price.

If I were you, I would go with an 1155 core i3, rather than that 1156 one. You can easily pick up an 1155 motherboard for around $80.
The graphics card you picked will be able to run any game these days at decent settings.
The power supply you have chosen is overpowered; you don't need more than a 500 watt for a single 7850.

Everything else you have chosen is fine.

Pulled the price down ~$100 with this version: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pQ3z

Repped all contributors.

What do you suggest? AMD Phenom has been around for years, which is fine, but I'm interested in the AMD FX CPUs.
