Custom budget gaming system

Hi guys

I've just been gathering some components for my new (budget) gaming system, what do you think ? Should I change something (must be roughly same price) ?

- 2x Kingston DDR3 2GB 1333MHz HyperX 2x1gb
- Asus 1155 P8H67 INTEL rev3.0
- Intel 1155 Core i5-2300 2.8Ghz


Already owned from previous system (can't change these things, cuze outta money)
- Gigabyte Radeon HD 4850 1GB GV-R485OC-1GH
- Raptoxx SPS-RT500PSP 500W
- (and 1TB HD, DVD-RW,ect.....)

  1. Looks good to me, i would recommend upgrading you graphics card and power supply whenever you can afford it though.
  2. depends on your existing hardware and operating system .

    But you might be better off replacing the graphics card and delaying the mb/cpu/ram which might make very little difference to your frame rates
  3. My current system is a ACER ASPIRE M1641 (2GB ddr2, intel E2220, 320GB, built-in GeForce 7050, Vista home premium), very cheap and a shitty thing. I bought the 4850 to have some boost, but system couldn't stay stable for more than 3 weeks. This is why I'm upgrade mobo,ram and cpu.
  4. Assuming you have Vista HP 32 bit then its a great upgrade !

    But be aware if its the ACER disk it probably wont install on another computer

    The reason its not stable is the psu. If you do plan on getting those parts, do yourself a favor and get a more quality unit.
  6. A decent quality 450W would be sufficient, Antec and XFX do some reasonably priced and decent quality 420-450W PSU's.
