Looking to replace a dead gaming PC on a very tight budget.

I already have a R9 290 that'll be going into (keep that in mind for fit) and a 250gb SSD that will do all of my hard drive work for now.

Otherwise I'm looking to keep the total less than 400.

proc/mobo/memory/psu/case.

proc: likely amd due to the prices - overclocking is fine by me - just include an aftermarket cooler atx/micro-atx mobos - don't care case : nothing flashy (black is fine) - i just want solid cable management and front panel usb3.0. everything else is gravy. mem : 8gb min. psu: 500 or 600w is more than sufficient (the R9 will be taxed when I'm playing games so 500 is probably minimum to be safe if also overclocking the cpu)

Throw out your ideas - feel free to modify - just keep the price low :)
