Super cheap build- Requesting input

My laptop just bit the dust so Im going to build a computer, current budget of ~$400, no peripherals monitor or OS required. Also I live in Canadaland so everything will be more expensive.

This is what Im at currently

With tax it comes to ~$407, any tweaks you guys can think of would be appreciated, also I plan on getting an R9 270 in two weeks, which wont be factored in to the initial price.

change the apu to a fx 6300 and am3+ mobo

and change the psu to something at least as good as a corsair cx430. That cooler master one will likely blow up and take out the other components.

I guess you missed the $400 budget part

What I suggested can be found for less than what you had.

No point buying an APU if you're going to get a dedicated video card soon after. You'd be wasting the major selling of the APU which is the integrated graphics.

Start with a G3258 and get one of the cheap Asus H81 boards and OC it. 4GB of RAM may or may not be necessary on that budget, buy the best deal you can find.

Get a ps4... I hear there's a good bundle with some decent games for $300 something.
