Hi, Id like to get some feedback and suggestions for this build.
Its my first time, so Iv browsed though the guides and forums and slapped this up.

I intend to use this for gaming, probably Age of Conan.
Im trying to keep this system at a low cost, quiet and decent
Any suggestions in any of the areas to cut cost would be great.
I will slightly overclock the system cause Iv never done it before.

The video card and the cpu are the only things I am adamant on.

For the PSU, I'm trying to find a decent one that provides enough power for my PC for the least amount of money.
Which of these would you recommend? Im leaning towards the Silverstone strider.

Change the processor to 8400 awesome cpu for gaming.
Take the Ocz psu they make very good psu and they work together with Pc power and Cooling. Two very good companies.

your video card may not be suitable for high performance gaming if your aim for that. Top quality gaming.

Because AOC needs heck of allot of gpu power.

But i will play at decent settings.

maybe you can find better ram, that has cl 4 rating, stick with crucial, corsair, ocz or patriot

i noticed the ncix.com webiste has teh seagate 500gb 7200.11 drive, if you can spare the money get this instead.
