AMD FX-8150 3.6 GHZ 8-Core Processor
ASRock 970 Extreme3 Atx AM3+ Motherboard
Corsair Dominator 8 GB DDR3-1600 RAM
Radeon HD 7870
WD Caviar Black 1 TB HDD
Intel 50 GB SSD
Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 ATX Mid Tower Case
Cooler Master eXtreme Power 600W ATX12V PSU


The things that I'm reusing are the 7870, the SSD, and the HDD. Overall, the cost of those 4 parts is $434.95. Thoughts? I'm gonna buy this tomorrow or in the next few days.

EDIT: It's 5 parts. I can't count.

Cost effective. I have a limited budget, and as much as I'd like to buy an Intel, they're just too damn expensive for me. Besides, the AMD is easily better than the processor I have now.

If it were me I would go i5 4670k and a LGA 1150 motherboard, but not sure if it will fit into your
budget.

or maybe a 3570k and LGA 1155. That would probably fit into your budget.
