Hey guys,

I have decided to switch over from console gaming to pc gaming. It seems a lot funner and plus my console games are getting boring. I think my build is pretty good so far. I am trying to stay under the $600 price range. I am also buying a wireless usb adapter separately. I am also counting tax. That's why I went with the GTX 650 ti instead of the 7850. I am planning to buy on Newegg.

Thank you for your help!

I would upgrade the gpu to the 7850, if what you are going for is gaming performance.

Everything would fit nice.

Would be better if you can get a 7850.
