    First off, get the Radeon HD 5770, it's better and has DX11 for the same price as GTX 250

    This case is a bit better too

    other than that what you have looks really good :)

    even if you didnt take my recomendations its a good setup, however i would definately try to get the 5770 if you can, as it is better than the GTX 250

    i made those updates that you said and also got this because i forgot i needed a Hard drive, but thanks alot though, i'm curious to whether or not you checked if that card is compatible with my Motherboard, but if not i'll check :)
  3. Oh, bad luck. the 5770 1gb was 150$ before, it appears that sale/mir is over now.
  4. yes the card is compatible :)
