I'm upgrading from my last gaming rig so I just wanted to get a few opinions.
AMD Phenom 955 x4 3.2Ghz
Foxconn A76ML-K 3.0 AM3
500gb Seagate 7200.9RPM HDD
nVidia Geforce 9500GT 1gb 128bit
350w PSU
SilenX EFZ-92HA3 Fan and Heatsink
And some Arctic Silver Thermal Compund.
I've spent about $250.00 on it considering I didnt have to buy a PSU or Video Card.
I was also wondering if my PSU is powerful enough.

Is that your new one or old?? If it is your new than no if it isnt than do this

CPU-i3-2120 or i5-3570k
Mobo-GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 or GA-Z77-UD5H(only compatible with the i5)
120 gb ssd
1 tb wd hdd
GPU- GTX 480 or 7850
Psu-you need a 600watt for the first and like 500watt for the second
Hyper 212 evo
no hdd cooler needed
good compound

The graphics card is way old the only good amd cpus are fx in my opinion I would use my build or else you will not be happy with your upgrade.

Well im not going to be major gaming. I dont yearn for Ultra settings on games too. WEll considering my old build was..
AMD Athlon 64x2 3400+
3gb RAM
Onboard Video
SO I thought it would be alot better. considering I'm only spending $250
