    *also, i didnt mention this before but fairly small form factor is important to me.
  4. Check out this config for about $330...IMO its well worth it...Did this for another poster here...
    X2 245 + ASUS HD 4350

    Seagate 250GB

    ASRock 770

    Patriot 2GB DDR3

    CASE + PSU - Antec with EA380

    So you get a better quality case and a high quality PSU, Current gen Dual Core, DDR3 RAM, 250GB HDD and a decent mobo...
    And also I dint count the Rebates...
  5. ^ Well dint notice that you had a HDD...So that would remove about $44 from the above total...So it comes to about ~$294
  6. thanks for the quick reply, i was hoping to keep the form factor small - so im not sure about a mid tower case. (sorry I didnt mention this in my original post).
    i do however like the idea of current gen hardware, but maybe a micro atx setup
  7. ok, taking most of your advice into consideration, here is the new parts list

    COOLER MASTER Elite 360 RC-360-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mini Tower Computer Case - Retail

    ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

    COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS-460-PMSR-A3 460W ATX12V V2.3 Power Supply - Retail

    Patriot 2GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model PSD32G13332 - Retail

    AMD Athlon II X2 245 Regor 2.9GHz Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Processor Model ADX245OCGQBOX - Retail

    ASUS EAH4350 SILENT/DI/512MD2(LP) Radeon HD 4350 512MB 64-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready ... - Retail

    what do you think?
  8. ^ Don't get that PSU...It is not of good quality and low efficiency...
    Get the Corsair 400CX...well worth the money...Remember one thing - If you get a high quality PSU, that has high efficiency, then that translates to lower power consumption, thus saving money...
    Or get this PSU - Silverstone 350W...It cost the same, but is far more efficient and actually will be more powerful than that PSU...

    The above PC would consume at the max 175-200W...So that 350W would suffice...
  9. thanks for the advice, but unfortunately its a little too late :(
    I got the psu listed, so ill keep my fingers crossed, hopefully it will hold up.
    still appreciate the info!

  10. ^ Well you can always return it back if you havent opened the box...IMO its worth to get a better PSU as it will last longer and would go very easy on the power bills...
