Additional Comments: I dont want it to be a heater please! ^^ Im going to be useing it to play arma 2, battlefield 3, borderlands 2, grand theft auto 5, etc, so if i could play them on high graphics that would be nice. A tower with a HDMI plugin. Even tho its not part of the pc can i get a cheap microphone that has good sound quility from my end.? Thanks guys
I have three suggestions to make regarding your project:
1)GPU: Sapphire HD7770 1GB Ghz edition; less power consumption and going with a newer model opens gate for future games to run smoothly. x2 in the future and you will still be under the $300 mark for nice graphics performance.
2) G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB). that will leave you with 2 free slots for upgrade in the future, and you have more memory (always nice to have I believe).
3) I don't know what you like about the case you selected but I would suggest going with a more powerful PSU and another case in the $40-$50 range. PSU iablotek Inc. PSDA500 DA Series 500-Watt ATX Power Supply (Amazon sorry). For the case you have tons of choices. I personnaly hate towers, but that one seems ok: Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
nI am glad I could help.
nPlease don't mind my opinion on towers. It really depends on where you want your machine to fit. I use it as a gaming/HTPC/work station on the flat screen TV in my living room. Therefore I needed it to be quite small and slick looking. However SFF cases come at a hefty price (damn you niche market!!), si if space nor looks are a priority for you, a empty black steel shell is really easy to find. And being in the US, you can enjiy sone nice free shipping from Newegg or Amazon (you should also consider that website).
nI hope you will share details on your final build soon.
New GPU as requested. New Non-integrated PSU as requested.
Tower alone is sexy ^^
And memory. Had to get another montherboard cause the other was outta stock. And a i5-2400 processer to save money. Lil overboard but i can sell a few things to settle that. Good?
