New budget Computer build
Jun 12, 2012, 12:59 AM
I'm looking to stream starcraft 2, and I am only on a 650$ budget. I know it is not that much but I feel it will get the job done. I don't need maxed out super quality settings HD stream.
i5-3550 & Team Vulcan 2x4GB DDR3-1600 1.5v $240.98
ASRock B75 Pro3 ATX & Cooler Master Elite 311 ATX Mid Tower $114.98 (104.98AMIR)
EVGA GTX 460 $134.99 (114.99AMIR)
DVD Burner $16.99
Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB & PC Power and Cooling Mark III 450w 80+ Bronze Modular PSU $137.98 (117.98AMIR)
Total: $645.92 ($595.92AMIR)
That is the build I am looking at for now...
i have a 430 GT video card and a windows XP cd I can use.
Side note - Would it be more optimal to keep the current graphics card and use it on W7 or a better PSU?
Any help is good

You're in good shape with that system, but forget the old GT430. If your copy of XP is not an OEM, you should be able to reuse it.
