Greetings!

I'm trying to build a budget gaming computer for around 600$. This is my first build and would appreciate if someone could give the setup I'm looking at a quick lookover.

[ CPU ] Intel core i3 2130 Sandy Bridge 3.3Ghz

[ MOBO ] Asrock Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155

[ GPU ] Evga Geforce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-bit GDDR5

[ RAM ] Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4) 240 pin DDR3 1600

[ PSU ] Rosewill HIVE Series 750W. Bronze Certified Modular

[ CASE ] Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid tower x3 fans

This current setup is 595.94$. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks.

P.s. On my android so cannot provide links. Sorry.

My main concern is with the GPU, CASE, and PSU. I've read the card runs kind of hot and needs a decent power supply.

a 750w psu thats certified is fine enough. Im using a hd 7850 on a 550w and im doing fine.

I'm pretty sure a 750W CPU is going to run a low power i3 and SLI 480s :p

Alright, good to know. Thanks for the feedback.

Is there any substantial bottlenecks in the setup. Or should it run current games decently without* to much of a hiccup?
