This one is an excellent choice as well. The Athlon outperforms the Pentium that I picked and both can be overclocked a lot. The ASUS board that I picked is better quality than the Gigabyte though. It comes down to preference at this point.

500W should be sufficient to run either set up that you chose with the GPU that you have. I would only upgrade the PSU if it is a low quality one.What brand/model is your PSU?
