ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM

Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

ASRock N68C-GS FX AM3+ NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD Sempron 145 Sargas 2.8GHz Socket AM3 45W Single-Core Desktop Processor SDX145HBGMBOX

total comes to be $352 at newegg. Maybe I should downgrade the power supply to 400w?

This will just be a computer for anyone in the house to use or for say if we had company over, the 6570 could handle some older games, maybe some new ones on lowest settings.

  1. Your cou is bery outdated and will lag and freeze alot
  2. Get this, its a better CPU than the one you suggested and has a decent GPU built in which means you wont need to get a graphics card saving you money

  3. Thanks, This obviously isn't the best computer, just trying to avoid spending too much money on a computer that I won't be using myself, just for other people. Any other recommendations/downgrades to save money?
