Pentium g850 : 100$
GA H61 d2 b3 : 68$
Corsair DDR3 4gb : 22$
ATI 5670 GDDR5 1gb : 100$
Umax 400W psu : 20$
SAMSUNG Combo DVD/cd R/W: 19$


already have: 1TB HDD & my old cabinet


Plz suggest for any improvisions in the same price range<tight budget> that may even add a couple of fps to CRYSIS.

Whats your total budget? I really wouldn't recommend that PSU since I haven't heard of it and I would recommend saving up a little bit more, ~$500.

I would recommend this PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... With the promo code and rebate, it will bring it down to about $25.

As for the CPU and motherboard, I would get these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... which is only slightly more expensive than your build, and will be much better. Yuo might even be able to unlock that CPU to a hexa-core. (6 cores)

This is not a gaming PC. And a $20 PSU???.....yeah, thats going to last long...... if you want to game on the cheap buy an xbox or PS3. At least buy a decent power supply that will last longer than 6 months and not risk destroying your other components.

Yeah, but if he puts his money in the right places, he can get there. If you look at the stuff I recommended, it could be a good budget machine for low resolutions/textures without any AA/AF.

What's wrong with the Corsair PSU after rebates with a lower price? Corsair is better.

I am not trying to be a jerk when I say that, just wondering.

1.65v RAM is okay too. The hd6770 would be good though, but I wouldn't go for a 7xx series chipset.

Correct link to the cm psu
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I didnt see the corsair link b4 . Either would be fine and the price is the same .The CM does have a higher amperage on the 12 volt rail but ......... Toss a coin , really .

1.5 volt RAM is recommended by both intel and AMD for their new processors . Might as well use it

1.5v RAM is nice, but you don't actually NEED it. It's just he is on a TIGHT budget and 1.5v is more expensive. And yeah, the pentium is not good. I would rather have the 960t over the FX though. Better per clock, but either would be fine.

ok! after lots of thread that confirms that even a 300W is enough for 5670, i can't risk.

so shifting my budget a bit higher for a PSU around 40$ and also a 5750 if possible.
