Components NOT needed:

Mouse&KB

    Like that it totals $500
    The on board graphics are fine for everyday use , but you may want to add a discrete graphics card . Pretty much anything around the $70 mark with the right connectors is the answer .
  2. Thanks for your feedback Outlander_04

    But upon further research I have come up with these components;)

    CPU: AMD FX-4100 ($130)

    MOBO: ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+ ($130)

    GPU: Gigabyte Radeon HD 6770 GV-R677SL-1GD ($130)

    PSU: Seasonic S12II 380 80PLUS Bronze Certified ($70)

    RAM: Kingston HyperX T1 Series 4GB 2x2GB ($50)

    CASE: In-Win BUC ($100)


    GRAND TOTAL: $610+TAX=$689.30+S&H $50= $739.30

    "Which is only $40 over budget" :D

    Your processor is weaker

    the mb needelessly expensive , in that it has features designed to enhance gaming that you will never use

    your RAM needs to be 1.5 volt or less , or it may damage the processor

    you have included a reasonably powerful gaming graphics card
