I just started my first computer build.I was given a motherboard, and an amd2x4 processor 2.8ghz.
So to get to the point i have a bestbuy gift card and need to know what video card to get for around 65$, and also what power supply, can i get a more powerfull one than need for maybe a future upgrade or will that hurt the system?And should i even worry about crossfire?The only things i will be doing is playing world of warcraft and running CS4(one monitor)?

Don't worry about crossfire for your needs.

It's too bad you have to use that gift card. Best buy over prices their video cards.
dvd rom http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

power supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... you always want a good name brand and you could always upgrade your card and need more power

a cheap video card for around 65?? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
not many choices.

I would get this power supply-------> http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Corsair+-+Gaming+Series+600...


and just worry about using one good video card. It's not necessary to crossfire/sli on one monitor especially for just WOW.

For video card grab this-------> http://www.bestbuy.com/site/EVGA+-+GeForce+GTS+450+FPB+...

That's around 200, you can add a dvd rom for around 20 almost anwhere, maybe cheaper on Newegg.


remember the video card had to be 65 dollars!

I understand but he has a 200 gift card, what is he going to do with the rest of it, buy paper? Besides a decent card for 65 doesn't exist.
