  1. Anyone?
  2. You could save a little money on the RAM by going for something like this.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231544

    And it's low profile to boot.
  3. Looks nice, I do not like OCZ for power supply's, I would go with an antec or corsair or even better seasonic. And if you are not going to be storing a lot of files I would really recommend getting an SSD, they really are fast and you will never go back to a HDD and you can get a 120GB Sata 3 for around 90 bucks. Other than that the build looks good.
  4. Seems like a solid build. Personally, I'd opt in for a more efficient PSU, but it's no biggie.
  5. Well can you please find a better Power Supply, on www.pccasegear.com, for $79? and i dont have any more money so i can not get an ssd, might get one for christmas or something.
  6. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=15_354&products_id=17373

    This one will do fine, the 500 watts that it gives will be more than enough to power the system nicely.
  7. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=186_912&products_id=19632

    And some low profile RAM that saves a little money as well, yet is just as good as the Corsair RAM that you chose.
  8. I don,t understand why poeple keep suggesting the 1600Hz ram everytime on low budget PC. 1333hz bottleneck any games currently.

    Sure your just saving 6$ but they are low profile and you won't get any speed increasement for the 6$ so why wasting it ?

    As for PSU go with seasonic, antec or corsair.

    You don't want a SSD on a 1000$ budget for a gaming PC.
