  1. Hello Trancedkuja;

    Your links are broken. If you can edit the links - just paste the link into the page without use the link tool.
    If you use the link tool - it wants an item description between the ] [/url brackets to make the like work right

  2. It honestly depends what games you are gonna play. I personally would stick with at least a 1 GB video card, but it all is a matter of WHAT you are gonna play. Games from mid 2007 and earlier should play on medium to high.
  3. How much are you going to spend on this build? If you're going for a budget build you should at least be getting a Pentium G3258 or an X4-860K. The Antec 900 is also a very outdated case, and you have a rather weak GPU.
