thepoopscooper's build would be completely botlenecked by the generic DDR3-1333. DDR3-1600 is a minimum for A8 APUs.

 

thepoopscooper, your own sig rig is also being bottlenecked by 1333Mhz memory. APUs are really, really memory bandwidth intensive. You will unlock a decent percentage of performance with DDR3-1600.


NS2 is multi-threaded and will appreciate cores. Going by the same budget expectation as above but noting the low resolution monitor:
 

My personal suggestion from what I can figure out would go something like this:

FX-6300 - $130 shipped [NCIX]

Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 - $60 shipped [NCIX]

2x4GB DDR3-1600 RAM - $30 shipped [Newegg]

NZXT Gamma - $35 shipped [Amazon]

Corsair CX 430 V2 - $40 shipped, $20 rebate [Newegg]

MSI 7770 Ghz Edition - $117 shipped, $15 rebate [Superbiiz] (the other one linked is back-order, not in stock) with code SUPERSANTA

This is $412 shipped, $377 after rebate

 

At this point however, I can't give you anything definitive as we don't know your exact budget or exact gaming requirements. Go from here and move left or right I guess?

i thought that the memory only bottlenecked the GPU, not the CPU. good to know.
i think i am going to get some ram for Christmas, seeing how cheap it is.
