Is that budget in US dollars? Because $350 is not going to build you much of a gaming machine. You may want to save up a little more, maybe aim for 500-700 dollars.

he basically said the trio is gonna be the foundation of a build that will happen over a period of time, he probably just wants to get the guts of the system out of the way first and add the rest at a later date, at least that's what I got from what he wrote...
