That will work, would you consider a quad-FM2 for an APU / HD 7600D gpu?

Could be a good performing option if you are not getting a gpu.

i have a gpu and will be getting a new one sometime in the future but hypothetically if i got the one with six cores and had a gpu better then the Integrated Graphics on your choice which would be a beter option

that is true, I have an x6 1045T on a GA-970A w/ 16Gb as my linux workstation it is rock solid - runs up to 3 vm's under v-box without too much of a hitch (depending on i/o demand lol). So if you need more cores that is definitely the way to go, throw in your gpu you have a rocking system.

If you live near a microcenter, they have their killer sale going on at the moment you can get a free mobo with the 6100 worth a look. They also have good deals on cases like the Thermaltake V3 Black Edition for $35 w/ a $10 rebate (used many of those, not to bad)

but, some considerations:

- make sure your PSU is up to task
- if you are gaming, certain games just don't like AMD and even the budget i3 will outperform

If you intend to be gaming a lot, the i3 system isn't far off the price you are looking to spend

Memory: Mushkin Essentials 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($43.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $206.96

and of course, microcenter has a good sale on Intel as well - free or $40 off select board like the i3 3225 and Gigabyte GA-H61M-DS2 combo is $130 w/ a $10 rebate - killer deal
