Hello Habibicle;

First requirement for building a new system is knowing what your budget is going to be. Yours is... what?

A suggestion.

You could jump over in the Systems > Homebuilt > New Build section of the forums and ask for help there. The experts there do new system build requests by the dozens every day.

If you fill out the form in *How To Ask For New Build Advice* you'll answer all the standard questions that help things get started.

Any 350 W psu will do. Don't buy no names though. Buy the cheapest one from well known brands. I found this one one newegg, it's antec basic 350W

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168....

alternatively you may want to spend extra 10-15$ and get some 450-500W unit, so that you can upgrade your system later on. With 500W you will be able to upgrade to much more powerful gpu and cpu like core i5+hd7850. Once again use brands with good reputation, psu failure may do a lot of damage to whole system...And when it comes to psu in range of 350-500W you only have to put extra 5-15$ to get good psu over some no name.

Thats good too. A Case? Try an Antec Case. They might be a little tight on your budget, but they make quality, cheap cases. Alternatively, try Lian Li for cheap, reliable cases.

This is just a warning! Ebay is full of knock offs and bootlegs, don't buy in Ebay you are just wasting your money.
