    I'd switch to this PSU, i think they're both the same price.

    If you can find a cheap kit, 1600 Mhz memory will be better, it's sometimes only a few dollars difference. Whether you need 4 or 8 GB is up to you. 4GB should get you by if you aren't running a lot of programs and tabs.

    You might also want to check the combos with your APU. Newegg is offering a lot of combos with APU + motherboard. A55 chipset is alright if you're cutting costs, but an A75 has USB3 and SATA3.

    What kind of gaming are you doing, even on the low end?
  2. this seems like a nice combo, and my gaming will probably be stronghold crusader extreme, gta sa, gta vc, and probably any game pre-2004. Oh and can you recommened me a wifi card please.
