Fixed powersupply, pretty good choice since its 80+ good effiency, But im not changing GPU since this is a BUDGET pc and that is 80 dollars + 8 with shipping

Mine is 74 -free shiping, sorry its a good choice but were for the 400, dont worry i've done a mainly 500 one if you would like to see ill give you the link.

oh yes, because this is the promo By NewEGG its 15 hours now. you guys should do it quick!

Last thing about the GPU this is a GDR5 = higher tech with an excellent price.

The 6670 has outperformed the 7750: notice we care about pixel rate and texel rate: proof.

Yes, but it uses half the power for an almost unnoticeable difference(7%). The 7750 also does not need a direct power connection from the PSU.

Budget PC or not it's for gaming and the GPU needs to be able to handle games a littler better IMO

alright, how about this: Quadcore Zosma processor, hyper 212 to overclock (and because it doesn't come with a cooler) and a GTS 450 for graphics.

OK...Seriously i dont know where to start so...

you gave me a link of a refurbished CPU + outstocked ( please Quality - Refurbished = high risk of a badegg)

2- A link of a 2x2 ram? ( mine is 8 gb and 1600MGhz- why downgrading?)

3- A very terrible GPU it gave a 12000 pixel rate mine gave 24.6k diffrence is just 34 bucks to be straight.

4- intel i3's are not pretty good of OCing, thats why some people Go for the 2500k.

didn't notice that was a refurb processor -- it must have just run out of stock, but you can replace it with an Athlon II X3 450 for an extra $5. decent shot it'll unlock to an x4.

and fill rate isn't everything:
