I haven't got a huge budget and I really want a decent gaming rig. So do I get a i3 4170 and gtx 750 ti now and upgrade GPU later, or get g3258 and gtx 950 and upgrade CPU later? Or consider AMD?

Looks like the price went up, on that ram. That is the one thing I do not like about Amazon. Their prices fluctuate way too much. This is the closest I could find, price wise, for 8gb. While you lose some performance, going with single channel memory, it will allow you to go to 16b, later on, without having to buy a brand new 16gb kit. Just buy a matching stick later.

Thank you, that brings it back into the price range. Will i need a wireless adaptor (can't use ethernet cable) or does this motherboard already have a wifi thing?
