MSI P67 Mobo with 1 sec overclocking (actually no use cos of non K)
XFX Radeon 5850 1GB DDR 5 256 BIT OC to 780 MHz and 1150 MHz

  1. It's not bad for a budget build.
  2. PSU is overkill. A good 550 - 600 watt PSU would be more than adequate. I estimate total PSU load at around 300 watts.

    CPU cooler is overkill. For a non-OC'd system, the stock cooler would be more than adequate.

    Non-OC'd system does not need 6 case fans and a fan controller.

    As a budget system, I'd rate it as a 5 or 6.

    As a system with expansion potential, I'd rate it about an 8.

    Keep in mind that I am from the U. S. and I am unfamilar with SA prices.
  3. I think the PSU comes with the case. CPU is overkill, I just assumed he already had this system.
