$200-300 Light gaming budget build. Already have vid. card and OS

Hello, I am looking for a budget build to do a little gaming. I will be playing League of Legends, WoW, SC2, and possibly Rift on at least 1200x800 resolution. I already have an HD 4850 and Windows 7 and my budget after that is $200-300

    Edit: A few better PSU's if you want to crossfire(think these will be enough for 2 4850's, someone will chime in if not I hope):

    Edit: Crap forgot HDD back to the drawing board :(

    Edit: swapped in a cheaper PSU and added a HDD, crossfire is prolly way over you budget
  4. If you have to stay under $300 can go with one of these mobos and save a few bucks:
    There are cheaper boards that you can use but I hate to recommend boards with just 2 memory slots in case you need to pop in more later down the road, but might not be a bad idea when on a tight budget.

    Also can drop the CPU memory combo and go with the $72 Athlon II X3 445 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103920 and some $40 dollar memory like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231396 to save a few bucks
  5. Awesome, you guys rock. Thank you.
  6. Yep happy shopping/building and cheers ^^
  7. No it would not. That is a full sized ATX board and that case is for micro ATX boards only. This case would work and is a decent deal: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811121096
