Little over the budget, but this would be fine.

or this.


This will be tough - you guys really seem to get it hard on pricing.

I would lean toward the Phenom II x4 build - if you can get a quad core then run with it.

An AMD APU build may also be a way to go... Xfire a 6670...

Thanks how many fans does the case come with and how many can the motherboard support?

Sorry for the late reply. I dozed off for a bit.

The case will have 1 fan. I think.. Not really 100% on that.

The motherboard will support 3 fans including the cpu fan. Which is plenty because your gpu will have a fan and then your power supply will have fan. All kinds of air circulation would be happening.

If you feel a need for more, you can get fans that have a 4 pin peripheral connection.

Thanks i was going to build this and just keep on upgrading it 

Great. Have fun with it!

Sorry one more question which would you say is better ?

I'd go with the AMD build because of the core count. In current games, both of those systems will perform roughly the same. The AMD will pull ahead in thread optimized games though.

Both rigs have great upgrade paths. You couldn't go wrong with either choice.
