GAHHHHHHH IT IS SO HARD TO FIGURE OUT WHICH ONE!

For gaming and work. This budget is nearly impossible to work with, so no hate.

Feedback please!

If you go with the first one id suggest getting faster ram like 2133 and 8 gigs because you will see better performance due to the fact that integrated graphics generally borrow performance from system ram. otherwise that is a great APU for low to mid gaming and its pretty fast. something else you might consider is getting a an i3 on a new chipset board with like a gtx 750 ti which would afford you at least high graphics and not be too expensive. it would also let you upgrade to better parts later. And if you dont have the money right now for the 750 ti you could just run off the integrated 4600 graphics until you have enough. sticking with the faster ram of course because even after you get your gpu faster ram is starting to make a difference for the first time in a long time.

http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/intel-cpu-bx80646i34330 theres a decent i3 from this generation with 4600 integrated graphics

http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-z97pcmate theres a cheap motherboard that works with both the 4th generation intel and will also work with the 5th should you want to upgrade (hopefully to an i5 later on).

its only got crossfire capability but thats not terrible amd makes good affordable cards and it only really matters if you want more than 1 card and it will afford you the ability to upgrade a lot later if you really want to. you dont really NEED to get the board and mid tower if you dont want to but it will help you in the long run.

-edit- also as far as i can tell most low end mid towers are cheaper than mini atx towers for some reason

Ok well, I think If you put in a gpu here like a r7 260x (the cheapest one u can find) u can probably fit in ur budget and play most games http://pcpartpicker.com/user/mrluckypants96/saved/GLL48d

Unfortunately, there is no OS or accessories like wifi and optical drive, so I don't think it will work.

Do you have any suggestions, then?

I was thinking that since I could upgrade the ram later easily, it would be better to spend it on a decent graphics card that I wouldn't have to replace.
