Video card
Not going get this tell All my parts are at my house I have a GTX 220 1g ddr3 To hold me off it still perfomes pretty good for what I do just my CPU I have now Is bottle necking my Frame rate.

I here you can OC it and unlock the 6 core making it a 1060T black edition I dont need a High end CPU as i just pvp-and Quest on my Games I play I don't live stream.

PSU- I pick this because of the Reviews and Ratings it has and its a Modular, has Dual 12V output
which is a + factor from my old Shitty 275 wat psu That sucks on cooling.

Ram- 29.99 Cheap looks good Enough for my needs also DDR3 With Free shiping Cant beat that..

I have a 250g interface sata 5400 RPM WD SCROPIO from my old 2009 laptop Going use that as a Sata drive for Storage Then I have my 300g HD from my main computer
With Windows 7 I'm using now..

I plan on Up dating the Case AI later this summer when they Go down in price for Labor day special
