  1. Get the 7750. The 640 is horrible, the memory bus severely bottlenecks the 2gb ram.

    You will barely even need a 450w psu. You probably only need 4gb ram. 8 isn't bad, but for what you will be able to do, I doubt you would go above 4.
    You don't need anything more than this board

    I doubt you would crossfire anyways.

  3. Here is an idea to consider. I don't think you need to spend that much on a PSU. Think about something like this to save some money to apply to a GPU like this:

    PSU: SILVERSTONE ST50F-ES 500W $59

    GPU: EVGA 01G-P4-3650-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 $149
