300 light gaming final check

Ok, so my friend's only shitty Dell is finally dieing, so he's pretty dead set on buying a new, inexpensive comp. This is the latest version of the list, just posting it to double check with you fine people.

Uses: typing, videos, music, internet, gaming

Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, speakers, monitor, OS, HDD

Buying from: Newegg

Preferred: AMD

Date: Hopefully tonight

Budget: ~300

CPU/MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.263449

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121320

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145184

CASE/PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811148046

Please note: The GPU on the list isn't the exact one he will be using, just the closest one I could find on newegg for reference. It is my old card from the HP I was using prior to building my own comp. There are probly better cards for the money, but that one will have to do.

  1. Power supply does not have a pcie power connector for a graphics card. Better make sure your GPU doesnt need it.
  2. Dont get a logisys PSU, its not worth it!

    it will cost you $11 more now but it wont blow up and nuke the system.
  3. Haha, thanks for the warning. I didn't even think about the brand, just that it was a 480W PSU with a case for dirt cheap. Any other qualms, or is this build about as good as it gets for the price?
  4. You mean other than not trusting ECS motherboards?
    $10 more for a Gigabyte motherboard.
  5. Ok, changed that. Anything else, or is this build good to go?
