Umm... that first build is not correct, it have the Anniversary Edition Pentium which's whole point is that it can be overclocked, but the motherboard you listed does not have overclocking capabilities, so the extra money you are spending on the Pentium is wasted, you could just get a normal G3220 instead.

On a second thought, the G3258 is 0.2 GHz faster than the G3220, so even without overclocking is a tiny bit faster. And seems the price difference is not that big.

If I had to choose between those two I'd go the AMD route for the GTX 750.

Anything with "AMD" shouldn't be included in a PC build especially when it concerns CPU

WHats the best gpu for $150?

AMD makes CPUs still :D

Really a i3 fine. I'd get that for hyperthreading. I bought one for laughs and it just powers through everything. It's hilarious imo.

You can overclock on that board now, actually. They just gained the ability to with bios updates in the last few months. That's actually one of the staple mobos of the g3258 cheap build setups now.
