Going to be my first build... which option do you think guys would be better for my light gaming needs and school/general use?

Part upgrades or such would be appreciated too. Thanks.

How much is a 8320 in Canada? If you want a cheap CPU that's still got great performance then I think the AMD FX 6300&8230 are your best bet. Unless your going with an mitx build. Since they don't make AM3+ itx boards...Really wish they did.

Also how much is a R9 270. Here we con normally get a 270 for nearly the same price as a 750Ti.

Yeah I'm going for a micro atx build, already bought the case... the 270 is quite a bit more than the 750ti since its on sale right now.

There's AM3+ matx boards. There not that expensive either, but again thats prices here not up north. I feel you'd be able to get a FX and matx board for around the same price as either of those CPU's with mobo.
