[strike]There is no reason to buy an H61 mobo for $105 and if you're using a mid tower case go with an ATX board.

If you can afford to go a little over your budget go with the i5-2500. The quad core will help with gaming.

So do you guys think I should go with the AMD build that I currently have set up or go with 384 -BiT's set up he has in that image minus the PSU and changing out the memory for the one danraies posted?

Everything looks good. If it were me I would go with a Z68 mobo and 560ti instead of H61 and 570. It's mostly personal preference since you're not overclocking, but H61 is pretty outdated and that microATX board really limits your expandability.
