  1. Not sure I think you're cutting it close though. Nvidia thinks this base card would handle it but it's the OC version it's bound to use more power than normal.
  2. Its a cheap low end crappy coolmaster.

    You would be fine with a SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151094


    PSUs are the last thing you want to skimp on, if you have a crappy PSU or a to weak of a PSU it will.

    BEST CASE: The computer will not boot

    WOREST CASE: The PSU frys your other parts, sometimes will even catch on fire.
  3. get one of these PSU if money is an issue

    $40 - xigmatek's 400w. its 80 bronze, 32a on the 12v and Tom's had it peak close to 600w

    But if you CAN afford $30 extra then the seasonic one I linked would be a much better choice. :)
  5. Ya, as obvious by the utter cheapness its honestly mandatory to be insanely cheep. the intent of this next build,** CHEERS FOR almost 300$ in build income this month!!!**, is to be able to build a rig that can "barely get by for now" and replace certain parts later. like this build has a 19$ POS broadcom case, one super low end 2 gb ddr3 stick
