It would be best if you filled out a form shown in one of the stickies to help get some good answers for you.

What is it for? Gaming? Work stuff?
PSU brand sounds questionable as does RAM
Is there a reason you have gone for Micro ATX rather than normal ATX?

you'd be better off building from scratch...

your old rig is outdated and for $500 you can get an adequate new rig.

would you be able to reuse the case? what case do you have?


Micro ATX vs Normal ATX is the physical size of the motherboard

Kingston 2GB 1600MHz DDR3 CL9 HYPERX KHX1600C9D3/2G 206.00 Lt
AMD PHENOM II X2 550 3.1GHz 6MB AM3 BOX HDX550WFGMBOX 269.00 Lt

Micro ATX is a smaller motherboard, means things are more cramped and you usually get less slots for devices. Avoid this where possible.

If going for cheap then your best bet is to go AMD rather than intel - you can usually get better for less.

I don't know much about AMD to be honest, but my understanding is Phenom II AM3 sockets can take the best CPU, so if you buy a budget one now you can upgrade later without replacing all your parts.

AMD Phenom II X2 550 - $89.99

GIGABYTE GA-790XTA-UD4 - $109.99 after rebate

G Skill 4GB 2x2GB RAM - $109.99

Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 - $149.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 500GB 7200RPM 16MB Cache - $54.99

SILVERSTONE ST50F-ES 500W PSU 80 PLUS Certified - $54.99

COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 - $49.99 $9.99 shipping

Cheap DVD drive - $20


Total: $649.87

So, this build is considerably over your budget.

You could downgrade your GPU to a 5670 - $73.99 after rebate

Total: $580.91

You can also get a lesser motherboard, as the one I picked is high - it has 6gb/s SATA and is XFire capable. So a lesser mobo would likely save you another $30+ which would bring your total under $550 which is pretty close to your budget.

At a later date you can upgrade your GPU and your CPU to a powerful gaming system.

Afraid I cannot be more help as I am unfamiliar with most AMD stuff and also your post is still very vague on requirements. If you look at other threads and see how they are set out you will know what I mean
