What about a bundle like this (doesn't include the GPU)?

Curious: what do you do with all your old components?

That bundle looks pretty good! But you only save 26$. Maybe a better idea would be to wait for Black Friday, though that's roughly a month away.
The old components you either keep, try to sell or recycle.

Yeah with this kind of budget best is to get something already all set up on sale, that's what would be cheapest. If you plan to build it yourself you won't get anything that good within these prices. Indeed looking for bargains on internet might be the better thing in your case IMO

Bumping: any opinions on the 200 vs 300 mb chipsets? I.e. z370 vs z270? The former is obviously more expensive... worth it?

As I see it, you don't have any reason to buy a z370, unless you want the new Coffee Lake processors which would otherwise not work on z270. But I'm not sure myself, I had to search for it to understand what you meant when you asked the question. Best get some more reliable advice from a professional source?

After using the stock Intel cooler for a few years, I got tired of my CPU overheating (though my incompetence is also to blame) and the noise, so I installed a giant Noctua cooler. I'm very happy with it. Not only does it cool very effectively, it's also so quiet that I can barely tell that my computer is on.

Its only flaw is that installing it was a pain.

AMD A12 APU (CPU+GPU)
8 GB corsair DDR4
(currently on single channel, meh; this processor needs double channel to double its graphical capabilities, since it's limited by badwith rather than power)
Running win7 64 bits

Nothing too fancy, and it is quite noisy (compared to my laptop) specially for some reason the 1tb HDD sometimes.

However it is still quite nice as this is the best PC I have ever had.
I can run 2008-2009 RTS (like RA3) with practically max graphics and hundreds of units on-screen and still looks fluid, so I ain't complaining.

Still, isometric sprites games are better :V
But there is use in daily tasks as well.

As for the old components, I keep them but they always end up dying anyways. Damned planned obsolescence. And I don't doubt these newer ones last even less. I have read life expectancy for a new computer is just three years (some of my older comps have stuff >20 years old)

PS some people are paying insane prices. Argentina is not known for cheap computers because of tariffs, and even then...

A12 for graphics value is much better than i5, if both are used without dedicated GPU. I got my full computer (minus monitor, but including peripherals, hard drive, and it came assembled) for ARS$6700. That's less than US$400. Paying 1100 euros for something equivalent or less than that is quite mad for me.

AM4 platform will also be used for new processors for at least like 2 years so you save on the motherboard eventually. While the Intel boards change quickly.

Also, if you already have stuff like power source and hard drive, you can just buy motherboard+CPU+RAM ("update pack") and it's much cheaper than buying a full one, while getting the same performance. I didn't do that because I needed the power source and extra stuff.
