Adding parts to Computer

Hey guys,I just want some feedback on the parts that I am debating on putting in my computer. I have a $200 budget, and I'm only adding in a new CPU and a new GPU. I have my sights set on:

Intel 2nd GenCore i3-2120 3.3GHz 3MB Cache Dual-Core valued at $119.99

AMD Radeon HD6570 2GB GDDR3 PCI-E Video Card valued at $79.99

My Motherboard is a GIGABYTE GA-A55M-DS2

The GPU needs a minimum of 400W. I have 500W. Do you guys think I have enough wattage when all the computer parts required wattage are put together?

If you need more information on my computer I would be glad to add it.

  2. no, thats amd mobo, you want to put intel on it?

    for 200

    i would pick i3 3rd gen 3220 for 110
    and dirt cheap b75/h77 mobo for 50
    and USED 6770 for 40

    try finding ddr5 gpu dude... ddr3 will suck most of the time :)
  3. So, if I put an AMD FX-6100 3.3GHz 8MB Cache Six-Core Desktop Processor into the computer with a GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7750 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E Video Card? Will that be good? Also, the required wattage for both those things will be 495W. I have 500W. Will I have to buy a new power supply?

    Is the Wattage enough to use for now though? Because I will have to save up some more money to get a new PSU.
