$450 budget + HD7950

Hi everyone.

So I'm building a gaming computer with a budget of $450, but I already have an HD 7950 GPU. So I just need the rest of the components. What would be the best way to spend that money?

Thanks!

    Thanks. Just a couple questions (just curious)-- Is a motherboard that cheap really going to be okay? I've been told by others I should get a more expensive one. Also, is there any advantage to having 2 sticks of 4GB RAM instead of 1 8GB?
