And i want to know what u think:

The most intense games i would play on it is "Age of Empires Online" and Age of Empires 3....Age of Empires Online was made in 2010 and is a newer game than age of empires 3...Would I be able to play these games full quality with no lag for sure u think? And what do u think of this set-up altogether for a low budget...Would u change anything IE...(CPU/GPU/Mobo), but not for some ridiculous price, for around same price as the others on newegg.ca

So here are is the list of components that he will put together for me... REVISED;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;PLEASE JUST RECOMMEND REVISED AREAS, THE REST IS WHAT I WANT!! :bounce: 

Windows 7 Ultimate, freshly installed

4GB DDR3 RAM (new)

1 LG DVD Player (new)

sapphire hd 5570 (new) $60

1 Black PC case and PSU (pre-owned) REVISED.......................NEED BETTER PSU RECOMMENDED
1 320GB Western Digital HD SATA(pre-owned)

motherboard, REVISED................ I NEED MOBO RECOMMENDED THAT WILL HANDLE THE FOLLOWING CPU AND GRAPHICS CARD........

AMD Athlon II X4 645 Propus 3.1GHz (new)
sapphire hd 5570 (new) $60

I'd go with a new PSU that's all, if it's cheap... And used... It could fry everything if it's in bad shape

The ECS A55F-M2 Motherboard is FM1 socket which is not compatible with the Athlon II X4 645.

I also noticed you said newegg.ca so I'm going to assume you're from Canada. You should really check out other places like Memory Express, NCIX, and others for parts.

I suggest you pick up one of these with a cheap AM3 or AM3+ socket motherboard.

I agree with what Xxsjxx1 said. Don't get some used cheap generic power supply as it could fry everything else in your system with it.

Make sure you test out that pre-owned hard drive for errors.


If you fill out the form outlined here I'm sure somebody or myself could help you come up with a much more efficient build for your money.

Edit: You could also step up from the 5570 to a 5670 for the same price

You can probably make better use of that budget. Ditch the Athlon and get a Pentium. Offers better value. Check the blog in my sig. There's a $400 budget build that might suit you.

here's a rig i do for myself if i were you...

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM: AMD Performance Edition 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model AP38G1608U2K

CPU COOLER:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

then you overclock the cpu to 3.6 and the graphics core to 900ish and you should be fine
