    Default Building a new comp. need help.

    OK, been a while since ive built a computer. probably about 4 years. im just gonna build one from scratch. so forget the case and all accesories. just all the hardware. im gonna be using it for a straight gaming computer. and i got a budget about 700 to 1000. im not going to be picky about any specs. i just want to a pretty good gaming comp. thanks

    For your budget, I'd say your putting your money where it counts most to build a gaming system, in the video card and CPU. So thats a good thing. You could probably downgrade both a little and still have a nice system if you really want to cut corners. I'm not so sure I'd use such a cheap PSU with those parts though. Hopefully it doesn't give you problems down the road.

    I agree go with a Better PSU. A True 620watt or above. EG SevenTeam 620watt
