  1. Looks clear, just up the PSU a little.
    I suggest this one, just to be safe;
    But all in all, if thats what you want, shoot.
    I'm more of an Intel dude but AMD is just fine.
  2. thats a great little budget gaming rig. how much did it cost you ? $400-450 i guess?
  3. I didn't realize that was already built, sweet machine really.
    Hope you enjoy it!
  4. Thank you I was thinking about upgrading psu and hard drive. But i asked around and they said they were fine. IT cost me about... 105 for CPU and Video card 57$ for mobo 17$ for PSU Hard drive and DVD drive were free case was 40$ ram was 20 so about 325$

    and I saved 125$ to buy a new 1080p monitor any suggestions ?
  5. If you can afford it, catch this one while it's on sale

    If you can't get that one, get this one, its on sale too, and a little cheaper.
  6. I'd double the memory at least but as I look up the specs I see that the mobo requires a 64bit OS if you intend to install more than 4gb of ram. I also notice that your hard drive isn't terrbly large by modern standards so I'd get another one perhaps a small ssd say 60gb or so and make it your boot drive. Overall I'd give the built a 5/10 pretty good for working on a budget.
  7. maybe just get a new 500gb hard drive? SSD isn't really needed but I could get one. 5/10 rating?? ARE you serious it's like 8-10 :D I'm gonna get the ASUS VS248h
  8. yeah i read somewhere that having alot of ram isn't necessary 4bg is plenty also I'm gonna get a 500gb hard drive soon I think. But I have an Acer X193w+ monitor should I use it or buy a new 1080p monitor??? that's my big question.
