Perhaps drop to 4GB RAM and get a ~400W PSU and change to the HD 7770. That will give you slightly better performance and lower power consumption.

Name brand with 80+ of course m 0 l jmsellars1 a b 4 Gaming May 14, 2012 1:56:19 AM Yeah that should be fine for something like the HD 6850 with an i3. The Corsair CX-430 or a Seasonic 430W unit perhaps. The XFX Core 450W is good too. m 0 l MrOrigon June 8, 2012 2:45:49 AM Best answer selected by MrOrigon. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
