Okay this is what i have and bought it at CompUsa :
Asus m5a99fx pro 2(159.00) Iam stuck with this because it is already opened
Corsair TX Series 750W PowerSupply (40.00)
Amd radeon 6450 core edition (60.00) <-- i can exchange if i want because i havent opened yet
this is what i am about to get at my local store
Amd FX 4100 (85.00)
Kingstong DRM3 8Gig 2 X 4gigs (35.00)
I already have a hard drive i think i am set but what i want is to build a pc that can run atleast some good graphic games and i will using it too for visual basics,photoshop, and some programming programs in it. Everything can be exchange except the power supply and the motherboard do you suggest i spend my money in something better or will this do for what i need, thanks?
Apart from the fact it's obviously limited you to most AMD processors, the motherboard is pretty good, if overpriced, so no problem there. Power supply is probably a lot more than you need, it would run TWO fairly powerful graphics cards.
Thank heavens you haven't committed to FX4100 and HD6450, as both are really pathetic. What is your budget for processor, graphics card, and RAM combined, and something better, I'm sure, is possible.
