  4. That is an inefficient, poor-quality PSU. You can get a modern, efficient (despite not being 80+) Antec VP-450 for around the same price.
    The video card also has two problems, although that may be why it's cheap. First of all, it's a Diamond; one of the few companies on my personal "Do Not Buy" list, in this case for bugs, miserable support, and general incompetence. Second, it's got DDR3, which is a lot slower than GDDR5.
    With a budget of $150, you should be able to get an Antec VP-450 and a GDDR5 version of the HD7750 at the least; possibly a HD7770 (although shipping will likely push over your budget a little).
    Edit: LarryM has posted one such inexpensive HD7770, but note that price is after MIR, which is a game you may not win. Still, it's only $110 before MIR.

    what about this one?
  6. That's the one LarryM put in his list. It is $110, with a $10 rebate.
  7. For the same $40 (MIRs are a game; I don't count them), I'd personally choose this Antec VP-450: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371045
    That's because the Corsair "Builder," while not a junk PSU, was built by CWT, not Seasonic (which builds the higher-end Corsairs), using some inferior Samxon capacitors from their "GF" line that are known to die early. The Antec is made by FSP, and is efficient enough for 80+ but is disqualified for not having active PFC.

  8. MIR from corsair are pretty good return ratio and pretty fast though I tend to agree overall that MIR's are a gamble
