Default Kaveri or Better wait ??

ASUS H81M-K LGA 1150
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813132052 - 172 (Mobo +CPU Combo)

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231427 - 48

VisionTek 900650 Radeon R7 260X 2GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814129282 - 144

Intel Core i3-4130 Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116946 - 172 (Mobo +CPU Combo)

M-ATX w/ 420 Watt PSU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811144110 -79 USD

All this for a total of 443 dollars. I might get a different case, but it comes with a 300watt PSU, but I don't know if that's enough to power this. Ultimately I would think it would be but would like expert opinions. It will ultimately have 3 HD's in it as well. That case is 20 dollars cheaper so it would be 423.
For a Kaveri Build...

IN WIN BL641.300TBL Black Steel MicroATX Slim Case Computer Case 300W Power Supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811108106 - 59

ASUS A88XM-A FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813132045 (Mobo + CPU Combo 265)

AMD A10-7850K Kaveri 3.7GHz Socket FM2+ 95W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819113359 (Mobo + CPU Combo 265)

G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231519 85

All this for 410. The rest of the stuff doesn't matter as I already have it, optical disk drive, HDD etc.

I just don't know which is more powerful and is the most future proof. I say that loosely as this obviously isn't a beast. I'll be watching TV at 1080, movies etc. thru this and either PC will do that fine. But I want to be able to play games like I said at max or near max settings at 720P, like Tomb Raider, ACBF etc. I think I could achieve that with either build but which is stronger? I plan to order this stuff ASAP from the egg. (Unless someone know of better deals somewhere else)

For now the Kaveri build should be faster in-games, due to much faster IGP. In the other hand the i3 is a much faster CPU and it's a more futureproof choice, if you'd want to add a dedicated graphics card in the future.

Also the Apevia case you choose comes bundled with a ratter shitty PSU - not a good deal

For gaming the Intel build will be faster, as 260X will be much faster than the integrated graphics of A10-7850K. Also I calculated your mobo+cpu combo to be $182 for that build, not $172. A cheaper video card :

This way you can get one of these :

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112222 (no usb3 front port3)

And a power supply like this one :

Ah sorry, I didn't notice the Intel rig already included the dedicated GPU. In this case yeah, the first rig will be way faster, no doubt about it.

As for the GPU, GTX750 might also be worth considering.

The first rig should be faster, but don't use the bundled PSU. It's probably just a 250W unit with a 420W sticker (assuming it's a cheap generic case, that is. The links don't work in the first post)

Definitely don't use the bundled PSU, then.

Yes, the R9-270 is much faster, but also much more expensive. Both cards are worth their price.
