~$500 build

Recommended Posts

This one would likely be a better PSU for you, also cheaper and well reviewed.

 

The case you've selected is a winner.

 

Not sure about the motherboard, never used a Biostar. I didn't spend tooo much time looking, but this board is Gigabyte, which is a brand I tend to trust, and cost less (although appears to have a max 4gb of RAM).

 

EDIT:

 

Whoops--here is the link to the PSU

The link above didn't work right, but it does take you to a nice list of PSUs sorted by PRICE on new egg so I left it :D

:withstupid: on gigabyte boards there great

as far as the cpu if this not going to be heavily over clocked I would I would buy the 925, and save $15, and spend in another areas maybe the psu or something, better than on board graphics as they ush. draw from ram, and you can get an off board solution that is way better, even for just basic stuff(not gaming) for cheap, XFX4650 with 320 stream processors and lifetime warranty, $25 after rebate.

if you are not running a graphic card that stock coolermaster PSU is totally fine

I don't know why everyone is so uppity about it

 

edit: oic, better check if the Profire 610 has any power requirements, probably not at least I dont see any

Alright the last decision to be made is for a case so I'm going between these two

and

 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811156078

which I would probably only run the front and exhaust fans as for my setup I think the other fans would be overkill and just add noise.

I think the idea of a removable motherboard tray is pretty cool too.

 

they will both come out to the same price in the long run due to discounts, rebates, etc.
