< $650 gaming budget pc - new build help needed

Hello,

I have $650 to spend on building a new budget gaming pc. I have peripherals already, though they are older. The purpose of this thread is for help in building the tower, I can replace the other stuff later.

I am ready to buy in the next week and plan to use Newegg exclusively for parts.

This is what I have so far, its a little over 650 so any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks!

  1. Your link is not working, it requires a log in.
  2. edit ** post updated bump
  3. To make things easier, I'd suggest creating this setup on www.pcpartpicker.com as it creates a nice printable layout that is easy to read w/o having to click on each link. Outside that, it looks to be a decent build. The only issue I would question is the power supply as there hasn't been enough feedback on it anywhere yet.

    Essentially the same, except a better videocard, bigger harddrive and other motherboard. Also, this list does not include mail-in rebates but shows the real price you pay when buying all the stuff.

    For a few bucks more you should get the R9 270 as it is a better card than the 750ti:
