  2. Hi ,

    Look at this build:

    If you don't see the parts disable adblock.

    It has everything you will need in next 2years+
    It cost 1000$ with Win7 but you can of course remove the Windows cost.


    for those who are too lazy to click:
    Intel Core i5 3450 + Nvidia GTX 670 :)
  3. 4. If your taking Finneous suggestions on CPU/GPU, then a good 450-500W PSU is sufficient for your build. I love my Seasonic M12II-520 and it's a great deal at Newegg right now:
