More about : build tlmck January 28, 2012 5:33:08 AM I would opt for an Intel Core i3-2100 processor, and a lower end ASUS or Gigabyte z68 motherboard. The Core i3 will out perform the AMD x4 at stock speed and allow for a better upgrade path. I also assume with the size of the power supply, you plan on Crossfire in the future. Otherwise, any decent 550 watt PSU will be fine. XFX has really good PSU deals right now and are of fine quality. I would also bump up to 8gb(2x4gb) ram. It is the sweetspot for Win 7 64 bit. edit: I would also check the prices over at Newegg. It should save you a few dollars.
