Hey everyone. About a month ago i asked for a build and someone answered back. () Good and thanks by the way. The thing is I was planning to build that pc in a couple of months but merely because my current pc was enough to fulfill the gaming needs and such.

A couple of weeks ago my MOBO died and the technician did a fucking terrible job. Took out a good 750W PSU and in exchange added a 500W one from about 2 years old, hell it had all the dust in the world.

He downgraded the MOBO from a G41-VS3 to a G31M-VS2 yet he coulda bought the same card at the same price. Took out my 4GB ddr3 RAM because the new MOBO only had room for DDR2 and added instead of 4GB it a 2GB one.

Anyway now i have to build what i had back this includes another new MOBO, PSU and RAM. Im going to use the same CPU a Pentium E5700 and my GPU a HD Radeon 6870.

I was able to buy a new case (Thermaltake Chaser MK-1) at least this one will have enough room (My current one only has room for micro atx)

Difficult enough i only have a budget of 200$.

I was planning in getting this MOBO http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-Intel-Micro-Motherboards...

Like this i would have enough to purchase more RAM and better CPU and later on i will just have to change the MOBO and/or PSU.

You guys will know better than i thats why i prefer asking here instead of just making the decisions on my own.

PS: I can only make purchases from Amazon and Ebay but there´s no need to search only in these 2.
