  1. I would recommend a stronger PSU to support any future growth (i.e. 650W). I would also suggest a larger HDD (1TB vice 500GB).

    Otherwise, looks good.
  2. The build is solid. You already have room for expansion with your 450w power supply, since your motherboard only supports 1 video card. Your system will barely draw 300w under absolute maximum load.

    Have fun!
  3. You should really be looking for a quad core cpu. Much more stable performance for gaming.
  4. I would get a bit more PSU if possible but it's also true that the system as specified won't pull 300W.
    It's just a matter of practicality. Having a little more power available at a very minimal cost would be a good thing.

    Would this site make it easier to pick parts? I'm guessing Sweden will be about as close as we can get

    Not obtainable on any sort of a budget. If they were using more expensive parts then yeah I'd agree that a quad core would be needed. Otherwise the i3 is fine.
  7. Yes. Is it a good price for you?

    yes, since its only 10 euros more
  9. thanks a lot for the replies, i reckon ill buy those parts. but if someone has any more advices go ahead and tell
  10. Almost forgot that a 6850 is a better GPU than the 7770: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/536?vs=539

    It is, and I can't speak for the UK, but in the states the 7770 is $30 cheaper than the 6850. The 6850 is *barely* faster than the 7770.

    Ntm the 7770 uses less power than the 6850, of course.
