Hey guys! After many changes, I've finally found a good combination of parts for a cheap PC. As the title says, I want to use it for casual gaming. I skipped some parts, as OS, case, keyboard, mouse and monitor. Take a look and tell me your opinion!

I'll have to buy everything on Amazon, so, some prices are different from those found on pcpartpicker.com. The SSD could be removed, depending on my final budget; without it, the price would be $552. What do you think of it? Is there anything I can change for a better price?

QUICK QUESTION: Windows 7 or 8.1? Why?
