Id almost stick with the FX-4300 and use the money saved to pick up a TB drive and possibly an aftermarket cooler. the FX-4300 will drive any game on the market for a few years, as will the GTX 650 TI

This is as close to the budget as I could get, this build includes operating system which is why it is $595 w/o the OS it is right at your budget. I think that trying to get all that you posted for you builds within this budget will result in a very mediocre PC, hence, why I chose to just put the main components within the $500 budget so that it will have a chance to last you two years. I think it is worth saving up and making sure that you get quality over just a quick build, but that is just my opinion.

As for the Athlon CPU, it is not bad, but upgrading to a Phenom 965 or a FX-6300 (since the 4300 is so close in price I would just get the 6300) would greatly improve the future proofing of the system. At least the Athlon is a quad core, that is the minimum core count that I would recommend, especially since you want it to last for a couple of years.

The 650 ti Boost is better, on paper, than the 7790 but you could get away with the 7790 and I am sure it would suffice. The 650 Ti Boost has leg up though because it has 2GB of RAM and that will help it in the future for sure, where to get the 7790 within budget (since it is not worth $155 for a 7790 2GB card because that is creeping right into 7850 territory and you can get a 7850 2GB for around $170 or less in some cases, especially with all the rebates and sales.

650 Ti Boost w/ Athlon 750K (Click to show) Total: $595.83

Decided to post another option. This one is a little closer to budget, with OS, and it has a 7790 GPU: 7790 w/ Phenom 965BE (Click to show) Total: $541.63

Hope this was helpful, maybe just for ideas or something. Cheers.
