Hey , I know this is another thread about a build , sorry about that. So let's get straight to it.

I'm planning to build my first micro-ATX Build with these parts.
-Are they all compatible ?
-Is there anything I could save on but get the same or just a lil' bit less performance ?
-Is there any other websites apart from Amazon and Newegg I can get my parts ?

I'm From Singapore so no point giving me Newegg links because they don't ship here.

Thanks. Any input would be appropriated. All prices are in SGD.

CPU: i3-4330 ( should I get the i3-3220 instead ? )
MOBO: Asus H81M-A < CPU + MOBO = $246 >
GPU: Asus HD 7770 < $137.15 > ( should I go for 2 Gb ? Or should I use that money to buy 2 GB to buy Hd 7790 1 Gb ? )
RAM : Kingston 2x4 GB RAM , KHX1600C9D3K2/4GX < $51.80 >
PSU: Corsair CX430M < $53 >
CASE: Rosewill Line-M < $44.40 >
HDD : WD BLU 500GB 7200 RPM < $70 > ( is the WD Black worth ? it's $99 )
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Other parts
-TP-Link N600 dual Band Network Adapter < $44.30 > ( I have a 802.11 AC Dual Band router , so is the 5GHz connection worth the price increase ? )
-Creative A250 2.1 speakers < $37.30 >
-Logitech MK200 Keyboard + Mouse < $25 >
-Asus VS288H 1920 x 1080 monitor < $172 >
- Win 7 HP < $120 >

================
Total : $1095.85 ( could be wrong )

Well.. I just saw that you are spending like 720 dollars on this PC, so I would like to tell you that you can build a much better build for 720 dollars.

+ i5 3350p is way better than the i3 with 4 real cores.
+ 7950 is way better than the 7750. Also it has 3GB VRAM and 384 bit bus which is good for high definition gaming.
+ 600W EVGA PSU is of good quality and also ensures upgradability
+ Fractal Design Core 1000 is a better case than the Rosewil Line-M cases.
+ 1TB HDD is double the capacity of 500GB HDD.
+ 1866 Mhz Corsair RAM is really good.
+ Also if till now you aren't sold then I would like to tell you that this comes free with 3 Games from AMD never settle bundle. Choose any of those 8 games that you like.

This is the ultimate beast. Hence get this build instead. You would be much happier.

Take a look at the build and tell me what you think about it. Your feedback would be highly appreciated.

Okay then. I am sorry.

As for RAM anything more than 1600Mhz is recommended by me. It affect a bit when moving from 1333Mhz to 1600Mhz. After 1600Mhz the performance is about the same.

Finally ! Thanks everyone.
I have some questions beside some of the parts , so please answer them as well.

@deanwonagain
I know you said that from memory , but I've read other articles and threads , and they say that the CX430 is alright for the HD 7770 . I don't know anything about PSU s other than what are the good brands.

Here's the price list from my local store. I'm only interested in the MOBO + CPU bundles as Amazon doesn't ship their MOBOs to Singapore. The GPUs are really overpriced as compared to Amazons'.
You have to add the Motherboard price with the CPU price.

ive had that psu before and it was great don't get me wrong but i like having extra headroom for if i wanted to upgrade say from a 7770 to a 7870 then that wouldn't cut it or if you wanted to upgrade to an i7 then you would need more power even an extra 150w would be alot better than that little 430w

It'd be great if there was a feature on this forum where I could choose the most helpful comments instead of just 1 Best solution. Sometimes the helpful comments are coming from a few people , so there isn't a best solution.
