Hey guys,
I am trying to build a budget gaming pc with the budget of around $400-$500, I can go a little more if really necessary. I understand with the amount of money I'm willing to spend I won't get an amazing computer but i want the best i can get. The annoying part of this build is that all the parts must come from http://www.gamedude.com.au/ (its really complicated ;_;)
So far this is what i've got: http://localhostr.com/files/2Ubu5D4/2398u.jpg
What do you guys think? Opinions, can you suggest a better build? I am currently thinking of upgrading from a HD7770 to a 7850 but the price difference is pretty scary :( . I am thinking of getting more ram, is more than 4gb really nessecary? Thanks for reading and please let me know what you guys think.

Sorry to say, but that is one crappy site.

I know, but sadly it's the only one I have access to. It's not that bad but yeah it definitely wouldn't be my first choice if I could use others. Thanks for your input.

The PSU is low quality. Don't buy the one Vordiggan says.
