Hi everybody, (Hi Doctor Nick)

I will be purchasing components and letting someone else build the machine(labor is free in Thailand). I want to use this machine as a Media Center/ Budget Gaming rig. It will be connected to my 40" Samsung Series 5 LCD. I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on what I've picked out so far(compatibility, quality, performance,general)...The build I've picked out so far comes in at around $475 with the parts purchased in Bangkok....

Thank you

Get ONE kit of 2x4gb ram to save like $20.

Only get a power supply from a reliable company. (Antec, Corsair, XFX, Seasonic)

Try to get a 7770 because a 7750 will only get you low-medium settings at 1080p.

Thanks for your input!

I will be purchasing all the parts in Bangkok so the prices from that website don't really matter to me.....

How many psu watt's would you recommend for that graphics card?

Cheers

a good quality 450w would do fine. Again only Antec, Corsair, XFX, Seasonic brands.
