Hey everyone. I have put together a cheap gaming build to play games at low to medium settings at 30 or so FPS. I must stress that if something needs to be changed, I can't go over 600$. The games I am at playing on this are Guild Wars 2 on low settings, Minecraft on high settings, and Planetside 2 on medium settings. If there is something horribly broken about this, please tell me a better option for a similar price. Thanks.

You're PSU is horrible. DO NOT buy from cool master. Trust me. It's a problem for a lot of people. When you buy your're PSU make sure it's from a trusted brand and or bronze+ certified.

I have an phenom ii x4 965 too and I thought this was the best budget mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case looks good, but you can get a good rosewill for 29.99 I can link IF you want.

You can find windows 7 on ebay for 65-85 bucks.

For 159.99 you can get a gtx 560
