RAM Kingston PC3 10600 1333 Mhz 4gb
PSU
CASE

  1. Case is a matter of preference really. Just go on like Newegg or something and look around and see what you like.

    In terms of power, you could go with one of these depending on how much you want to spend:

    You could get by with some good 500W PSU's that are much cheaper, but I'm recommending really nice higher wattage ones so in the future if you want to upgrade you wont have to worry about the power supply.
