Well first of all,Hi everyone,I just registered but I used the forums for few months

So I tought about building a pc for the first time,and my max budget is about 600 euros.

This is what I tought of :

PSU - PC Aerocool Strike-X 600W ATX 80+ Bronze 70euros

Case - Case Midi LC-Power PRO-906B 120mm

Memory - .RAM DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaws-X F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL 1600MHz 8GB (2x4GB)

HDD - Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200rpm 16MB SATA3

CPU - Intel Core i5-2320 3.0GHz Socket 1155 95W (with cooler)

Motherboard - AsRock B75 PRO3-M Socket 1155 Intel B75 DDR3 SATA3 USB3 MicroATX

GPU - Gigabyte nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti OC Core 928/1032MHz Memory GDDR5 5400MHz 2GB DVI HDMI VGA

and a dvd burner from my 6 year old pc,should work.

So what do you think? Any improvements? And consider what I said about budget,Can't go much over it

looks OK. the DVD burner will be OK if its SATA, but not if its IDE.

I'd sugggest an Antec or Corsair or XFX 400-500W PSU for the 650ti,

and a 3470 if you can afford it,

There won't be any difference in performance between 1gb and 2gb vram on a 650ti..i'd suggest getting a 1gb version unless there is no price difference..and a better psu like screwysqrl said..

Well I tought about what you said and i decided to use this (unless u have other improvements within the budget)

CPU - Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz Socket 1155 95W

GPU - EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Ssc Core 1071MHz Memory GDDR5 5400MHz 1GB DVI miniHDMI

All within the 600 euros range ,but I'd like you to explain me if it will change much if I get another psu.
