What kind of games, what resolution, and what price range?

The 380X is going to be the lowest you can go, such as the SAPPHIRE NITRO Radeon R9 380X ​so $220.

That would be dictated by the games. I would suggest the FX-6300 over the FX-8350 as money is an issue, qbtheslayer​ would you agree?

I'm not much of a gamer, so I can't say much about this...   Although, games & NetFlix at the same time is pretty demanding on a thread basis so maybe more cores would help...  Again, I'm not one to game very much so I have no idea what the CPU demands are now-a-days
