PSU: 350 watt OS: windows 7 Cooling: stock m 0 l christiangordon December 15, 2010 7:55:22 PM You will be fine with your specs. I would change the PSU eventually. With the Stock PSU you might want to drop the cost of the CPU to the X3 like stated before and change the GPU to a more energy efficient one. m 0 l minime200527 December 15, 2010 7:57:15 PM Where are you affording that for $400 key me in please m 0 l Best solution builderbobftw December 15, 2010 7:57:17 PM thedigitalrob said:Well I usually play at 1600x900 THis si a decent mid-low range build and should handle crysis at 16x10 nicely.
