Everything seems spot on. What with your budget, that is. PSU is included with the case? I know you got budget constraints, but if you could extend your budget by 40$ and get the 110$ 7750 card, that will be the best deal. Still, if you cant, go ahead with this build. It is amazing.

+1 to Proximon. Also, upgrade to a 7750, much more futureproof. Apart from that a gold star build.

That's cool. I recently built a system similar to this with some reused parts.

Don't buy it.

If you're on a tight budget, wait until Ivy Bridge is released on April 23rd. It's SOOO soon. You may at least check to see if it reduces prices for existing motherboard and CPU inventory.

@Proximon--is there any reason you're opposed to the Corsair CX430? Isn't that still $16? It could handle a 7850 with ease (not that I expect the OP to get one).

I'm not opposed, exactly. Bang for the buck the Antec is better. The Corsair is a CWT made unit, and the actual max 12V is LESS than the Seasonic. It's a fine choice normally for a very low budget, but I find the Seasonic very compelling at that price.

I'm surprised it's still available, but the Neo Ecos were never released to reviewers... Makalu did a review though that was quite good. This is a professional grade review:

I got a Neo Eco 620C for $30 last year, so I'm reluctant to recommend anything at a worse price point. That sentiment is, of course, ridiculous, but that's the viewpoint I'm looking at it from anyways.

I'm closing this tab in my broswer. PM me if you come back.

To be quite honest, you're not going to make any kind of gaming PC for $400. Your hardware you listed is generally bad, sorry, but if you want to make a gaming PC with good graphics that you can actually enjoy, then I'd save up more money, at least $1000.
