30 dollars over but trust me its completely worth it. If the only thing you are doing is gaming then I'd go with i5 instead.

I don't really like the case because it's small and i don't think it has much room for upgrades. I've had an Alienware sense 2013 and that's one reason i can't upgrade it, it's the size of a console. Anyway you could pick a larger case like a ATX mid tower and motherboard or something?

Nzxt source 210 elite would be good. Or a corsair 200r

Mainly gaming, just go with i5. Recommend spending just a little over your budget and going with newest Skylake CPU. Did not include keyboard or mouse, but if need can pick up the decent bundled ones for 30.
