Need help with building a budget gaming PC

Hi,

I have selected a few components to build a budget($530) gaming PC.

The components i have chosen are.
1. Cabinet with Power Supply Unit (420W): Cooler master Elite 310 ($76)
2. Motherboard: Gigabyte H87-D3H ($126)
3. Processor: Core i5 4430 ($204)
4. Ram: Corsair DDR3 4 GB ($40)
5. Hard Disk: WD Caviar Green 1 TB ($67)
6. Optical Drive: LG ($18)

Please advice if these components are fair enough for a budget PC.
Also advice if there are any better options.

Thanks,

  1. Gaming PC !! what about the GPU ?
    you need at least a GTX650 or HD7770 for a decent budget gaming PC
    also, PSU details please, cause Geforce GTX 650 needs - 20A and a 400W PSU minimum,and Radeon HD 7770 - 19A and a 430W psu minimum
  2. I assumed the Intel integrated Graphics would have been enough. However, with the configuration i have mentioned above if i add a GPU GTX650 and PSU 450w? will that do?

    And, i could see a configuration below your reply. Is that the configuration you are recommending?

    450W for your rig would be OK, just remember using only good branded certified PSUs
    which is the brand and model of your PSU ?
  4. Brand and model of the PSU is, Corsair - VS Series.

    Thanks
