  1. Nice rig.
    The only thing you should actually change is the CPU.
    You can better get a nice i3/i5/i7. I would recommend a i3 3220. It's like $130 and it can do some great work.
  2. ill stay to g2020 till i3/i5 prices go down :) thanks for advice anyway.


    More opinions?
  3. I would change the power supply. Go with a Seasonic, Corsair, XFX, or Antec to name a few.
  4. What is the use of this computer? Gaming, just surfing, watching videos etc

    What is your budget?

    Where are you located?

    Well you can't do top end gaming the way it is (but I am sure you know that).

    For that budget or slightly higher I would be a Intel Core i3-3220 and a HD7750.

    I know you said it was too much but the i3 is the lowest I would go. You can get the video card and see how it does but it will be CPU limited with your current cpu.
