The case does come with a PSU, but from what I know cases that comes with them are garbage. (Unless Antec)

I plan to light-medium game on this comp. Along with very light 3D rendering and video editing, and of course plenty of web-browsing. Solid build for my use? My monitor is 1366x768

  1. I am already stretching my budget with this, so if anything you want to suggest instead of what I picked, please keep it the same or around the price.

    Also, from what I can see, the PSU I want is pretty low grade. Can anyone suggest a good 500W+ fro less than 30 bucks?
  2. What's your budget?

    All of the above come out to be a few cents under $215. All you need to do is factor in the price of which case you'd like of your choice, and the addition of the video card you picked above.
  4. Okay thank you, will look into it!
  5. Figured your suggestions, and it would take me to 385. My budget is 375, so 10 bucks ahead is fine.

    The PSU troubles me though, it has the big fan and the case I want doesn't allow the air to blow out. Either at the top of the case or directly in my comp. I need a PSU that blows out the back. (I am looking at newegg for some)
  6. You're getting that case you posted above? If so, try to steer away from that one... There's SOO many other cases out there that's a better choice for under $40.
  7. Will look, thanks!
