More about build look
  1. Your build is terrible if you are seriously interested in saving money and getta far better build PM me and I will put together a parts list for you.
  2. your psu is nice, but thats pretty much it.
    your mobo and your cpu is way outdated..
    and you can probably buy 4GB of ram for pretty cheap nowadays... just gotta look for those deals.
    sometimes, building a computer is just matter of how patient you can be in looking for good deals to come by.

    anyways, either PM Headspin_69 if you havent yet, or do some research of your own :)
