  1. hard drive a 500g drive that on sale...if there a local micro center or tiger direct or new egg shocking deal.
    for mb to keep your price down your looking at a micro atx with two ram slots and one video card slot.
    if you want to run an ib chip and more ram.
    full size mb with option to do two video cards and or ib, around the 100-120 price point.
  2. The video card requires a 500w video card and the included psu is 480w and there's no mention of what brand and the spec's of it. I can't imagine what kind of quality the psu is since the case and psu are for $39. The video card is obviously a good quality card but you can end up wasting money trying to get low prices if the parts are of such low quality that they fail in a matter of days or weeks from purchase and your forced to purchase another.
    Most likely you'll have to get a lower priced video card since it doesn't fit in with what your getting.
  3. What if i scrapped everything except the Graphics card. what could i get?
  4. What is your budget?
  5. 330 Discluding Graphics card
  6. Cpu and Motherboard combo.

    If you go with a video card that is one model lower than the one you have chosen it would save you $10 and you could get better ram (1600mhz).
  8. Only one of the links is working and it's the first one with the Rosewill case. It's also the same price as what I had listed and the Corsair psu is much better than any Rosewill psu.

    If you read the reviews of those case/PSU combos you'll see lots of people having problems with the PSUs in them. A bad PSU can potentially fry your motherboard and video card.
  10. Can you find me a combo with a good psu?
  11. actually nevermind, im going to go with your psu
