  1. If I made any errors PLEASE tell me!

  2. Yes I did say 720P. Don't say get a 4K/1080P monitor because I do not need it. Plus I already have a monitor.

  3. I have a XFX Radeon HD 6450 (With CrossFireX support) will this pair with the Radeon R9 380 because I need a VGA.

NOTE Sorry if I'm rejecting advice but my sources are saying other wise.

Intel is still doable even at that price point.

You can't Crossfire 2 different GPUs.

You should go Intel CPU for gaming.

What is your maximum budget please?

I also wouldn't touch that PSU with a barge-pole.

Budget: $500

CPU: Intel CPUs are badly overpriced.

GPU: I need a VGA for my monitor. ideas?

Given that a Skylake i3 is cheaper and better than the 8320E when it comes to gaming, completely disagree with your statement.

The other Posters have made up some good Skylake builds.

Yes but according to my site the AMD processor won: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare.php?cmp[]=2374&cmp[]=2617

Benchmark in what though? Certainly not gaming.

There's no point in arguing and then changing the story once the argument has been started.

You explicitly stated it was a gaming build. That's what I am basing my opinion on.

If you want a gaming/multi-tasking build, start another Topic.

I'm not changing the story it's just I want a little bit of everything and that's why I went for gaming because it would be a good mix for what I need.

The monitor that I own does not have HDMI or DVI.

I am guessing their Monitor only has a VGA input. I've got 3 5:4 Dell like that.

Think about it this way.

The 8320 is 4 years old. The i3 6100 is a few months old.

Name one piece of hardware from 4 years ago that beats something that came out recently at the same pricepoint.

Then ask yourself why the 8320 is any different.

Get the i3.

CPU: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare.php?cmp[]=2374&cmp[]=2617

GPU: Yes I guess I could see why but as of being an extreme multitasker ([WARNING INCOMING STORY] I ruined a new computer in a week due to the amount of things I like to do at once and how fast I was trying to do it) I would like to keep every drop of performance but if you can come up with a cheaper GPU with around the same performance I would like that.

PSU: What does iffy mean?

RAM: What do you mean odd setup?

a r380 can run 1080p very well lol

but i'd switch to a core i 3*

i forgot they are only like 130$, so i did a edit

CPU: Forgot about that, sorry

GPU: What about when I'm using VMs because I plan on giving my family a PC that way.

"After looking at reviews, please stay away from it!": Reviews on what? The GPU or the CPU.

RAM: I'm hoping for better transfer speed but now that I think of it... My HDD will not keep up.
