Thread Starter 
ok, after doing what seems like years of research, i figured out what i think i want.....lol
this is what i considered.....
option 1:
$220
CPU: Intel Core i3-4330 $150
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116945

MB: MSI H87-G43 LGA $70
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130697

option 2:
$239
CPU: A10-6800K $140
1http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113331

MB: GIGABYTE GA-F2A85X-UP4 $99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128566

option 3:
$324
CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230V3 $254
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116906
MB: MSI H87-G43 LGA $70

i'm going with the E3 chip. i mean for $105 more (it could be $95 if i buy it from Superbiiz) it's a hard argument to have. that's not much money to get a whole better chip. after all the graphs, reviews, and comparisons, the i3 and APU were really close. it really came down to which application you ran and how much you multitasked that would determine which one is slightly better. this build is only $ out the door (i also saved $13.50 on the ram because of the black friday deal. the MB for some reason also has $15 off so not a bad chunk to save off the top. shipping was a whopping $3.87.
i did change the psu and ram because i felt when i add a GPU later on the 450W psu would work a bit better (and it was cheaper!) here is the list of the remaining items that goes with this build.....

looking at options.....there seems to be 1 ITX board that supports A-series APU, MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130662). i could go back to the ITX case i picked out, it's the same price as the Corsair 550D, so it wouldn't effect the final price. this ATX version seemed to be the best (yeah, like i really know) ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157457).
so here are the concerns, how much "computing" power will i lose if i use the integrated graphics? will the hyper 212 be able to keep this hot sucker cool? (i have only seen one post with those 2 and they said it worked "just fine." what PSU will now be a best fit? if i go with no gpu but then plan on adding one in lets say 3 years, i need to make sure my psu can handle it. this says it can do duel graphics, what would be a good card to pair with it?
like i said eariler, there is so many options, i'm just trying to figure out whats going to be the best value, best performance, and most longevity. capt danko, you do have a point about how cheap amd is, that chip, itx board, and possibly getting a lower watt psu, plus no gpu, this build just go super cheap. however, i do want something that will kick the living crap out of that alamode program and be a multitasker beast!
mdocod, as we discussed earlier, the E3, chip, is there a preferred board for ATX? if i go micro, i won't go with the one board i chose early on. i'll skip the wifi and BT. dad simply can't use it right now. if he does, i'll order him an add-on card. not sure, but did we speak about still adding an GPU with the E3 because the intel graphics may not last the test of time? i could go with an option to not install a gpu now, but have the correct psu, then in a few years add a gpu to support the system.

You don't need a dedicated card like 7750 for a office rig, the integrated GPU on the Richland will do fine, in fact you can even play games with it.
