As said in the title, I have a certain amount of money I have received for Christmas and I need to find a semi powerful but cheap(er) desktop.

Where you from? Good to know for correct pricing. If U.S, I made this list a while ago. You could probably add a MX100 or something if you can afford it.

I'm from the US so usd. ALSO, I just tried making a build and it seems to be much better http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Furycall/saved/ybDhP6

That is much better. The reason mine sucks is because I directly converted my Australian list (I'm from Australia) to US pricing, and pricing is really bad here in Australia, and that's why some of the choices might seem a bit off. However the APU I chose is probably a better option than the i3 and will take advantage of the faster RAM. Good luck!

Good but you might want to spend an extra $10 on the great CM Storm Devastator keyboard/mouse combo too.
