  1. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/antec-power-supply-vp450 get this PSU.

    You should get medium settings in those games without much issue.

    You can use speakers without a sound card. They aren't really needed unless you do audio work.
  2. Okay what's your budget, because in this case, you will get better performance if you go for an AMD processor. Here's something I made for the same price, with a better graphics card, a better CPU, a better mobo, better memory, much more hard drive space, a better PSU, and a cooler looking case for a lower price. And you can play all those games on high-ultra!

    Alright, First of all, a 7770 isn't better than a 650ti. It's worse. Secondly, at 1080p a 7770 will only get you medium settings in these games. For high settings you would need a 7850/gtx660 or better. A 7870/660ti would be able to max things.

    There ya go. The 7850 2gb factory oc'ed twin frozr is MUCH MUCH better than a 650 ti LOL. I also have you 8gb ram for a few $ more, a better quality and cheaper psu, and theres no need in paying $12 for 100mhz on the g870 unless you really want to lol.
  5. i would look at this. if you can get enough money for a 2GB version that would be a nice upgrade.

    Except the case - cases that cheap ARE NOT WORTH IT. They cut corners on construction and have generally poor build quality. You don't want to get a crappy case whether it's a $500 build or a $5000 build. Get an NZXT Source 210 instead - $15 more and it's a far better case that will last a lot longer than Apex garbage will.
  10. You're right. Crappy cases suck. They have an MSI case on sale for $22 on PcPartPicker. And Tiny Voices, I was wrong, I admit.....
  11. while i agree when your on a tight budget you have to sacrifice something. it doesnt look like that msi case has any cable management either but its hard to tell from any pictures.
  12. Get 7850. Smokes the 650 ti by a mile.

    What he said. I have one in my build. Beats the 650ti every time.
