A quick check with an online power calculator gave me 300W

Basically, you don't need a whole lot, which is good, because you can focus on quality.

If your on a tight budget, an Antec NEO ECO 520C is about as cheap as you will want to get. Anything cheaper puts your components at risk, and is extremely inefficient. If you have some more cash, get a SeaSonic G Series 550W. The SeaSonic may actually save you money, as it will waste less power.

Thank you both. Do either of you have any suggestions other than the Power supply. I am making this PC for gaming. The game I play the most is League of Legends.

I changed my Graphics Card to this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A0HZOEA/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER from this http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-HD7750-1GD5-V2-Radeon-GDDR5-Graphics/dp/B007RFYEQW/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1361032014&sr=1-3&keywords=7750

I don't know if this was right or not but. It is for gaming but not for hardcore gaming. I only play like League of Legends right now but I will be playing more games in like the summer. Right now I am like at $780-790

Ok. I would like to improve your build since some of your components are dated. League of Legends is more CPU intensive so you need a better CPU (the x4 will do well but you can do better with a newer one). I will build you a PC for about 850 on newegg. I hope this will help :D

Lets see what you got.

I have 3 CPU options for you to chose from (AMD vs Intel):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113280 AMD A10
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113287 AMD 4300
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116775 Intel Core i3 (dual core but performs better than AMDs usually with less power)

RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233144 (10% off until 2/28 :D, brings it from $52.99 to about $47.99)

Motherboard (I personally like ASUS):
A10s Board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131882
4300s Board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131873
i3s Board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131837

HDDs - Since League of Legends is an RPG (if you like these types of games you may like games like MMOs which require faster HDDs):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136533 (1TB is better since these games take up a lot of space)

PSU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139012&Tpk=650W gold corsair Corsair
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151088 Seasonic

GPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150598 AMD (640 cores) ($129.99 to 109.99 after rebate)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130839 nVidia (768 cores) ($139.99 to $124.99 after rebate) I think nVidia is the better deal because their drivers are much better and it has more cores. I have so much pain installing AMD graphics drivers for my PCs.

DVD Drive:

I hope this helps a lot :D. I really wanted to get you the best value for your money man, and I feel like this is the best way to go. This took me a while to do so it may take you a while to go through the links and decide. Best of luck. :D

AMD FX 4300 CPU + AM3+ Motherboard + AMD 7770 + Seasonic PSU + Caviar Black HDD = $652.93. I am proud to say my friend that I have just saved you 200 bucks :). You can maybe ramp up the CPU to an intel Core i5 or the GPU to an nVidia if you want. Oh yeah and you would also need a case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139018 Good budget case. Also, the fundamentals to building a PC: never use drivers on CDs :D.

I really like this but my total price for all was $802 that was with my monitor/mouse/case and keyboard all included.

I really like this tho and I just might have to spend a little extra

I say if you wanna futureproof to the max, go with a 650 ti. I am glad you like it, it took me an hour to do the research and such.

Did you build a PC and if so what are your components?
I have built a few in the past for friends. I have a laptop now though. Planning on building my own this summer. I am more of a troublshooter than a builder. Did you add in the Corsair 200r case? Phenomenal case for the price.
 

AlexL

TS Rookie
Yes I did add that case but I am still looking through others. Do you have anymore suggestions for cases that can fit all my stuff. I dont want to spend a lot on the case tho.
 

Jad Chaar

Elite Techno Geek
The case doesnt have to be expensive. That is the best case you can get that has good airflow, the rest will Overheat your components. Lemme do some research for you.

Hello, nice to meet you!
I highly doubt you'll have any heating problems with any midtower case with what you've got. You might as well get something that you like and is pretty inexpensive.
 

AlexL

TS Rookie
Well the most I wanted to spend was $70. I didn't know if I could get good airflow and Wire management with that price but. Oh yea how big to you think the 2 graphics cards you listed earlier are? Are they about 11-12 inches or smaller?
 

hellokitty[hk]

Hello, nice to meet you!
That's fine for that price I personally like the bitfenix shinobi but the inwin BUC or NXZT tempest at that price does have better cooling.
You could definitely go cheaper though.
