    With the combo you do get an a quad core but its llano so its stars cores are really like a athlon IIx4 @2.6-2.8 and the PSU is a bit on the weaker side. It does come with a case though. Need to price the ram and gpu
  3. why do i need a new case when i already have a bigger one?
  4. In that case go my build XD

    get it? "case" :P

    There is actually a 620W ANtec Neo Eco on sale for $29.99 so get that instead of the GX
  5. link
  6. btw this is my new gaming rig i have 8gb of ram in my old system and a gtx550ti as well so could i over clock the cpu in that combo? my athlon x3 has a 4.00 overclock

    You can overclock with the baseclcok but it all depends on the luck how far you can push that. Some people have had great success, others less so. 3.3 would be about all I would expect
    Went with the 7850 to differentiate more from the 550ti you're using already
