You would be better off with a cheap IB i3. Not only that, but the PSU and mobo are junk in that combo which makes it cheap. Blue drives are slow and for a tad more you can get a 650ti.

Yes 1155. The 3330 is 189 and the i3 is 129. Unless you're doing encoding or anything like that there isn't much of a difference. With more funds you can add any single GPU solution with that PSU without worry. Since it's a 77 board there shouldn't be any IB support issues and has PCI-E 3 (not that it makes a difference). If you want to overclock later you'll need a Z board though. Not really needed either.
Don't quote me on this but I think you might be able to "overclock" by raising the turbo a bit. I could be mistaken though.

4 ways to make it cheaper. Less RAM, smaller HDD, crappier video card, or skimp on PSU. It's already less than 600 so it kind of defeats the purpose of saying, less than 600.

I did a fresh format and don't have an IRC client installed. Nvm, webIRC derp.
