I've been trying to build a low budget pc just for low-mid gaming, but mainly work so the system ain't that much:

MotherBoard: P8H61-M LE REV 3.0
CPU: Intel Pentium G860 3Ghz
RAM: Kingston 8GB (2x4GB)
HDD: (still undecided with SSD)

Would like to know if anyone has a good idea of a decent graphic card to go with these specifications even if their not that great for gaming :)

An 550ti would work nicely if you don't want to spend too much money.

Uh it would reassure us if you would tell us the name and model # of your psu so we can accurately give advice that won't blow up your pc. But if it can handle it I would definitely suggest the 7770 (I was gonna suggest the 7750 but the 7770 performs better and its only 10 dollars more. Though if you are on a super tight budget you might want to take a look at the 90 dollar power color 7750)

Ooo sweet, my 2400th post :D 

So to reiterate, go with downtowns plan. (was checking prices so I didn't see it) but still want your psu name and model #)

Sorry about the delay i've been having problems finding the PSU on newegg couldn't find it...) i presume its outdated not sure as it was a given to me by my brother


PSU: 580W Eurotech Silent Pro (FPSPA580PSA)

If the PSU is sufficient for the HD 7770/7750 which brand of it would be better? powercolor/saphire or?

Problem is the P8H61-M LE rev 3.0 i got has only pcie 2.0x16 altought on the box it says its ready for 3.0 cards but only gets its full performance if i have a 22nm cpu so im a bit lost on this since i havent been checking teh PCIe 3.0x16 just because it doesnt say it has a PCIe 3.0x16 slot

pcie 3.0 is backward compatible with pcie 2.0 so don't worry about. And it willnot make any difference to run the card on pcie 3.0 or 2.0 (in terms of performance).

What u mean on is backwards? sorry as i don't have that much knowledge on hardware department :sweat:  since i don't want to throw away money on a card that wont work right, thus i'm trying to be carefull. Would really appreciate it if u could explain it a bit better :D

Basically you can put a 3.0 card into a 2.0 slot or 1.0 slot and it won't matter, we aren't using 2.0 to its full potential so going from 2.0 to 3.0 doesn't mean better performance. But yes it will work :)

well that is really good news as i saw a MSI RADEON HD 7850 1GB DDR5 kinda cheap on a store near me but it was 3.0 slot so i tought i couldnt use it, but in terms of brands would msi be good for my system?
