Better CPU, it has storage, it has a better case, a much better PSU, a insanely better GPU, and is about the same price.

I don't recommend AMD processors at all for gaming, compared to the intel series. Especially with that 970, maybe look at an i5 6400 or something close. I'm not at all familiar with canadian dollars, so that might be asking too much.

AMD stopped being a realistic budget alternative about a year ago. Intel just kept getting better and better while AMD didn't release anything new (for CPUs) and the prices stayed static on everything they had. Hopefully AMD will be back on the market with their looming Zen release, but there's still no word on when it's actually coming out.

Here's my suggestion. It's far more balanced overall (more powerful overall too, actually)

For value purposes, I like AMD processors.

They ironically have a bad bang for your buck.

Return the CPU cooler since its not needed for a i3 3100 or a locked i5 and the CPU, you shouldn't go buying parts before posting on the PLOW section about said parts.

That GPU is stupidly overpriced, you could get a RX 470 for cheaper. Also that PSU really isn't a upgrade. Also you forgot a wifi adapter.

Please show me where I say that it is reccomended.

If make a partlist for someone it is pretty much implied that you are recommending those parts.

I am simply stating that I have absolutely NO input at all on his PSU.

You chose to use in your list .
