    Emulation requires processing power. I would go the Intel route with a B75 motherboard, you will be able to just drop in an i3/i5 later if you find the G860 not up to the job. I would go with an i3-3220 from the off, but that would push you over 300.

    The A10 is fine but if you go with the A10 you will be pretty much stuck with very limited ability to improve your CPU horsepower.

    B75 mother board 45
    G860 50
    Radeon 7770 85
    Corsair 430CX V2 PSU 36
    Crucial 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600Mhz Ballistix RAM 15 from Ebuyer
    Generic Case 20
    Seagate 500GB Barracuda 7200 RPM HDD 46

    I make that around 297.
