  1. 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.
  2. yeah that's gonna be some very slow gameplay
  3. I would recommend this PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026&Tpk=Corsair%20430w 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=N82E16813157272 and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103995 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)
  4. 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.
  6. Depends what resolution you are running but heres an alternate build with a much better processor and a much much better graphics card and a psu that wont blow up

    AMD FX 4100 $110
    AM3+ mb with 760 g chipset $65
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131795
    2 x2 gig of RAM [ at1.5 volt or less] $25
    Radeon 6770 $90 after rebate
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150540

    and a decent bronze certified Coolermaster power supply for $29 after rebate

    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.
  8. Correct link to the cm psu
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171060

    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
  9. Oh yeah
    http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1766/
    heres a review of the FX 4100 .
    Generally it performs better than the full fat intel i3's so its going to smash the g850 pentium
  10. 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.

    Could probably drop 100 of the price by using a used 4850/70 off ebay.

    Optical drive you wanted to get and either the CM or Corsair PSU.

    Plus your old hard drive and case.
  15. I'd suggest a llano build as well.

    could be had for cheaper with more graphics and cpu power.

    also get a least 1600 mhz ram.

  17. RE-REVISION:

    Pentium g850 : 100$
    GA H61 d2 b3 : 68$
    Corsair DDR3 4gb : 22$
    ATI 5750 GDDR5 1gb : 105$
    Corsair/Cooler Master/* 450W : 40$ ± 5$

    already have the rest like 1TB HDD, etc


    Queries:

    #1. suggest me a psu of 430/450 watt


    #2. assuming AMD doesn't exist, provide any improvisions in the same price range<tight budget> that may even add a couple of fps to CRYSIS.
  18. Good luck with the build!
  19. If AMD doesn't exist, then the world would explode! :lol:

    No, but all jokes aside, run a Core i3 instead of that pentium. 8gb RAM would be nice too, so if you could get something like these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115078 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226095 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130616

    That would be MUCH MUCH MUCH better along with the Corsair 430w V2 I linked earlier.
