ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I have really set my eyes on these parts but I am confused on which motherboard to pick. I am only planning to play Warcraft's DoTA & Left 4 Dead (basic games in SE Asia). Could you guys please name me some Motherboards I could pick with good onboard VGA ~$100? I also have seen how cheap ATI Radeon HD4650 has become, how about also help me pick good motherboards without the onboard VGA also ~$100 so I may compare thoughts. I am currently pondering on Asrock's G41M-S but is its Intel GMA X4500 good enough?
No Extra parts... It's just that this would be a client computer for a small LAN games shop. nothing hardcore. Hmm.. AMD build.. what basic parts do you have in mind? I am looking at Tom's Best Gaming CPU. Athlon II X2 250 or Athlon II X3 425.. I am so used to Dual Core, is it a waste to get a third one? Which board is it best to be fitted on?
I have an issue with the PSU. FSP Group makes good PSU's, but you only have 23A on the combined 12v rails. It is also only >70% efficient, which means it runs hotter the closer to it's load limit. It might work on the 5770, but your cutting things close. I'd consider spending $15 more (initially) and get the Corsair 400cx PSU. It's $55 shipped - $15 MIRc = $40. You get 30A on the 12v rail and it's >80% efficient too.
