I already have a Corsair 620HX psu to use so that's why it's not on that list.

I already have a OS and 500gb HDD as well.

Any suggestions or tweaks to improve without spending a lot of money? What should I expect from this at 1400x900 resoultion? Thanks in advance.

Oh btw, is everything compatible?

Lol your build is empty from the link. Thats probably acting like a personal basket so I can't see.

You did a good job. It looks compatible. You have a mid tower which fits ATX motherboards. A full sized motherboard would have more features.

You have quite a solid budget build, you have a nice processor; the 750ti is booming at the minute and is a fantastic GPU (for the price).

It's also pretty upgradeable build for the future as well, especially with your good PSU.

Hope I helped :)

Hah thanks! xD. I'm thinking of swapping in the GTX 750 ti for a GTX 660 for around 25 bucks. Good idea or bad?

I personally would go for a 660 as it performs slightly better although it uses much more power than a 750ti but your PSU can easily handle it.

Speaking of psu, I searched up my psu on youtube, and the only reviews I see are from 4-7 years ago... I'm kind of skeptical. 620w is good and can handle a lot, but why does it seem so outdated? Kind of worried.

As long as it works it should be ok because it is a HX series which are good PSUs, If you want a new PSU the CX series are cheap and reliable or you can see some seasonic or XFX.
