Yet another "my first build" topic... here's mine

I wanted something recent, somewhat powerful to do a bit of everything. Including a bit of gaming. I'm not a huge PC gamer but I might play a few games from time to time... Here's my list: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/7nvFK8

Note that I didn't include these items: monitor, keyboard + mouse and OS because I will use what I already have for now... I will also buy a video card (and a new monitor) later. I'm focusing on what I need the most for now.

SECOND NOTE: I will not use the case in the list. Instead I will get this: http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=31230AC1078&vpn=BFC-NEO-100-KKXSR-RP&manufacture=BITFENIX It's not even in the database of this website. I understand that it's fairly recent, came out a few months ago. IMO, it's sweet and perfect for me.

What do you think?

Why do you say it doesn't make sense? And yes, I do have a limited budget...

Well, I made a second list under your recommendations... here: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/nhYYQ7

I made some research about the differences between APU and GPU and I think I get it...

Also, with this setup, I actually save money.
