So this past couple days, I have been collecting a list of Computer Parts for my Budget Gaming PC ($500 - $600). This is what I have so far, any opinions or advice will be appreciated:


-Motherboard: ASRock H77M LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
-Graphics Card: EVGA SSC 01G-P4-3652-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
-PSU: COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS500-PCARD3-US 500W ATX12V v2.3 Power Supply
-CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K *NEED ALTERNATIVE*
-RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M4X1600C9
-HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
-Chasis: Sentey Extreme Division GS-6060 Plus Sandy Matte Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case


The only concerns I have so far is whether the PSU can supply the necessary power, whether all the parts are compatible, and which parts I can replace with a better, preferably cheaper one. One the side note: I already bought the chasis and a Razer Naga Molten mouse ( Courtesy to Newegg's 72-hour sale). If further clarification or reasoning needed, feel free to leave a question. :D

Change Psu to a Corsair CX500, coolermaster its a bad brand on psu, Why are you getting an H77 motherboard when you are picking an Unlocked Cpu, You either go with Z77 so you can overclock your cpu or downgrade the cpu to a i5 3450.

The Gtx 650 ti its not the best Card at that price, its the 7850. If you wish to go intel then pick the ti.


Psu power: You Could Easily run that pc with a Corsair CX430 no problems.

Thanks for the reply, but i chose the 650 ti because i prefer an nvidia, although i realize that the 7850 is better but it doesn't have PhysX. :p  Also I changed the mobo to a Z77 so that should be fine now. And lastly, for the Corsair CX430, can it power all the components? Because i thought a 20+4 pin psu can't power a 24 pin mobo
