I'm trying to build a computer for very light gaming, MS Office stuff, Skype, etc. Plan on running win. 7. Thoughts? Budget is up to $550 (without monitor), currently is around 460 with windows.

-AMD A8-5500 3.2GHz

-MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 Micro ATX FM2 Motherboard

Swap your power supply out for cosair 430w unit or 500 w unit. It give you a little more head room if you add a gpu latter on in the build.

get 2 sticks of ddr3 1866 not 1 stick of 1333.

i'd rather have the antek listed instead of one of corsairs cheap line.
