so i had a gaming rig built and with continuous upgrades and giving away parts i have a few spare parts left and am trying to build a computer with it. im trying to see if i can get anything decent done with about 200 dollars. so i have a

Biostar TH67+ motherboard
4GB (2x2GB) of Corsair Vengence Ram(full size black ones)
XFX ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB
Corsair Hydro Series H80 Liquid CPU Cooler
320gb notebook drive(just gonna take one out of my sister's netbook she doesnt use)

so i was thinking of getting

SeaSonic SS-350ET Bronze Power supply (350w, 80+ Bronze certified)

Intel Pentium G630 CPU(or maybe intel core i3 2100 CPU?)

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

so how does the overall system look.
(please don't tell me thats not enough to power a hd5770, because i KNOW for a fact it is enough seeing how i used to run it off a 300w PSU)

im kind of doubting in getting the g630, but im only running League of Legends and Starcraft II... but who knows.

For the same price, you can grab a Antec NeoEco 520C for $45 using the code CollegeSave10. It's also based off the Seasonic S12II series with different caps (85C vs 105c) but it shouldnt matter much in the long run.

Other than that. Your build seems fine for a budget build. I know many who play SC2 and LoL on laptops with far lesser capabilities than your setup atm.
