swap out the power supply that a no name brand unit. swap in a cosair power supply for the same wattage you may spend 20-40 more for the cosair before rebates but it last longer and the system wont have any power issues.

You'd be far better off going with a quad core processor and a better graphics card. You also don't need anywhere CLOSE to 650w - a 500w unit will be plenty.

Like I said, you're better off cutting elsewhere. This is a _gaming_ computer - the most importing thing is the graphics card, and a 650ti was made to display slideshows, not games.

That be my suggestion personally. Of course you can use this as a base and switch out any graphics card you want or other components but with this you would have a pretty solid amd gaming build.

The 650 TI is listed there as a great gpu for its value in the $110-$180 range of gpu's. You won't max out all games with that card but at medium settings it is fine for gaming. Not the best card but sufficient.
