  1. The motherboard you picked has onboard video. You could always try it first and see if you even need a gaming graphics card.

    The games you play and monitor the resolution determine what you need for graphics.
  2. except that, is my build good? i want a video card, even though i m short on budget, i can still afford a video card :)
  3. For around $100, look for a GTS 250. It can play modern games at high settings at 1600, so it will be overkill for your current res. Although I would recommend bumping up your psu to at least 500w if your going to get a gpu though.

    If your going to be doing any gaming, get a 550 or a 720. There L3 cache and high clockspeed will beat out the 620. In fact the 620 is kinda mediocre at games.
  4. thanks for the suggestion mothmusic, but i would like to hear some other suggestion for it before buying it. as for the processor, what if i oc my 620? i heard that it oc pretty good, correct me if i m wrong, and my main purpose is only movie and surfing, gaming is for second purpose because I am afraid that I can t control myself (the logic for me is better gpu and cpu makes me play better game which is more addicting XD)

    People are as easily addicted to online poker or simple flash arcade games that dont require a graphics card as they are to any other kind of game.
