    Your links don't work as you intended. They all go to the Tigerdirect main page.

    hey stelz, spend the extra 25 bucks and get a hd 4830, the 4650 wont game much with modern titles. for 20$ you can get a much better cpu HSF. and most importantly!!!! do not purchase thay PSU! you are asking for trouble. cheaply built PSU's will fry your entire system. invest in a corsair or an Antec. I dont have any experience with ECS, but the chipset and features are good. heres a couple links for ya, :)

    For $300, these parts are what I recommend:
    Should be a slightly over $300. Most items have free shipping and everything will be compatible. You should get excellent performance on almost every game with the image quality options maxed out (save for AA).
