Hey guys!

Im planning on doing a mass pc upgrade on my old back up system and get it alive and running again.

Im currently looking at the following build...

Im on a budget of $430 AUS

CPU: AM3 x4 945 OR Am3 x4 630
Mobo: GigiaByte MA785G-US2H
Graphics card: 1GB GTS 250 ECS <--- any suggestions for graphics cards? for around the same price of $130


And i currently own a Corsair VX 450w PSU and Im wondering if the power supply could support all of that. and im hoping to put it all in a Thermal Take V3 case since its a nice cheap case with a lot of bonus's.

^ Well they why not switch to the X3 435/ 440 and get a card like the HD 5770 ???
And as for the PSU, it can easily handle the HD 5770...My friend uses a CM Real Power 460W for powering an i5 750 + HD 5770...
