    Well, that may only be $468, but it doesn't even compare to previous suggestions (no GPU?)

    Why the decision to cut the price?

    Dont waste your money on that mouse. Just put the money toward your build and save up for better peripherals later. Get a cheap mouse so that you can use the PC.

    God I feel you could do better for that money, I was helping my friend build an APU machine (Small for factor) and he got a very high end one for 600ish (A10-6800k and 2133mhz ram)

    May I offer an alternative suggestion to help your build?

    Keep the case for that price and a PSU included is nice.
    $69.99
    Lets also keep the same Motherboard, that MSI one is nice
    $79.99
    AMD A10-6800k
    $149.99
    Same HDD, its a good price
    $64.99
    Gskill Ripjaw-Z 2133 (2x8gb)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231619
    139.99
    Gateway 21.5 Monitor (Specs are the same and the price is cheaper)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824113034
    99.99

    Total $605 before shipping, honestly that processor you selected would just disappoint you I feel compared at all to what you were wanting to begin with. This build would at least be a nice amount of power for the money and would at least let you have a little power behind your system.

    Its just a thought

    Ehhhh I would not do that so much just because if your going to APU route, you might as well grab an AMD card as the APU's internal GPU will crossfire with it for a performance boost.

    you can crossfire a HD 7750 and enable Hybrid-Crossfire mode for it boosting performance and power consumption when not gaming.

    Just a quick forums link saying it is possible, I was reading and it seems that's one of the only GPU's you can hybrid with at the moment at least (Other than apparently the 6670).

    Dont bother with that 6800K if you have a dedicated GPU. Get a AMD Athlon X4 750K instead. It is the 6800k without the GPU.

    Well he can get the 6800k even if he wants a dedicated GPU as well, like I said he can set them to CFX Hybrid mode with the 7750 and gain a nice performance boost. Matching to his budget, doing that works and its actually not too bad, the only downside being is that hybrid CFX is so limited on what GPU's it works with.

    But yeah, if your wanting that GTX 650Ti, just grab the Athlon X4 750K instead because otherwise your wasting the iGPU on the A10 because it would never enable due to the card being NVidia.

    Dual graphics offers a minimal performance boost. An APU with GCN cores + a high end GPU = performance.

    APU boost is sort of a gimmick.

    Pay a few more bucks for this RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231308. Your board doesnt support triple channel memory, so you need either dual, or quad (4x4 in 2 dual channels).

    Otherwise it is a good build. If you can, try to get a better case and a better PSU. I dont know how much ventilation that case will provide and I do not know if that PSU will be any good since the whole price comes to $20. The PSU is probably VERY cheap.

    Or this one which is cheaper and quicker:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231689

    Usually you can get a 760k for a dollar or two more, it's a richland price so it's a little better than a slight bump in clock speeds.

    $20 is the CD/DVD drive, the case/PSU combo is actually $70.
    But it's still probably a junky power supply. Rosewill makes a lot of good ones but I think this is not one of them.

    I agree, if you have not already ordered, switch from the 750k to the 760k for that performance bump at like 5 bucks more.
