I really like my Phenom 965 BE so I threw that on there. I pulled the Fractal case and the Gigabyte MoBo from one of the other suggested builds because they are both solid. I switched the PSU to a Rosewill one because the Corasir CX is mediocre at best. I really wanted to fit in the 7790, but it was busting the budget by about $20, I think that the extra money for the 7790 is worth it though.

Here is the build with a 7790

Honestly, probably the best build your going to get for your budget, I would buy that.

I would still take the Athlon x4 750 build over that. The 750 should perform similarly at much lower power consumption, and cost a bit less. By the way, the Rosewill Stallion 400W is worse (far, far worse) than the CX430. The Rosewill Green series may be an improvement, but Stallion is a serious downgrade in quality.

CPU($80) - AMD Athlon X4 750K Trinity 3.4GHz(OUT OF STOCK, might have to pay $90 to get it from tigerdirect)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009O412AU/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Motherboard($50) - ASRock FM2A55M-DGS

PSU($40) - CORSAIR Builder Series CX430
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026

RAM($53) - Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313345

GPU($100) - HIS iCooler H777F1G2M Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161402

Total price - $353 or 363 depending on where you get the CPU. Price includes shipping but does not include rebates.

The 750k can do 3.8ghz on stock heatsink, just undervolt and overclock it.

It's weird how all the 750k's went out of stock recently, and newegg just got them too(months after everyone else).

Thats $379 (not including optical drive or OS) and a little different take. I went with a cheap Athlon II X3 but I went with a pretty beefy Gigabyte 970 motherboard with 8+2 phase. This way you can keep it a while and upgrade to bigger and better processors if you want. Still uses a 7790 so you should get decent performance at 1920x1080.
