missing a gpu kinda need that if your building a gaming build and your better off getting 2 2gig or 2 4gig chips so you can have dual channel.

I'll look for cheaper parts then.

I see you are missing a PSU too. You are going to want a dedicated GPU rather than an APU unless you plan on light-low setting gaming.

EDIT: Nevermind, I see your case has a PSU. I would stay away from that to be honest, usually the PSU's that come with cases are absolute crap and I wouldn't run a system off it.

What kind of games are you looking to play? APU's aren't suited very well for newer games at high resolutions. For light gaming, an APU is fine, but if you want to crank the bling up you are going to need a dedicated GPU.

I also agree with what iinversion said, stay away from PSU's that come with cases, they are complete junk.

This is much better than the original, but now you need an actual CPU and not an APU. You could go for a cheap Phenom II + that video card and everything else listed. Much better PSU choice, good job.

Tried to, it shows as an incompatibility. I have to stick with A4 because the motherboard needs a CPU with a FM2 socket.
