Stuck on a first time build?Help :(

Building my first system. Going for several goals.

  • Good looks
  • Performance(or upgraded to perform better)
  • Stability
  • Somewhat cheap

I'm coming from a Inspiron 1545 with 4gb of a ram and a 2.2ghz Pentium T4400
I've currently got 8gb of ram to install plus my 350D case.I've got 2 options that will suite my needs. I could go with the fx-6300(possibly 8320) and the GA-78LMT-USB3 motherboard(keep in mind I'm coming from a laptop from 2009 I'm not worried about sata 2 or overclocking oranything else.Or I could go with a GA-Z87MX-D3H and a pentium g3220 and upgrade to a i7 4770k when I could afford to do so. I'll be gaming, recording games, skype and web browsing. I'll also be doing video editing, but for myself and I don't desire the fastest render times. But I do want it to hold strong and just give me a decent amount of performance. As I'm quite tired of being limited by my CPU (and GPU). Which would be the best bet?I'm trying to make the inside all black because of my RGB lights. Thanks a bunch to anyone for helping.

Re-write and format.  That paragraph's hard to read.

Check and see if that RAM is DDR3.

It looks like you're starting cheap.  Get an FX-6300 and a motherboard like the Asus M5A99X Evo R2.0 for 8 core upgradeability.
