Affordable gaming computer

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I'm working on making an affordable gaming computer that will last me a bit longer than lower end models but not exceed $700. If you could take a look at the setup I have as of now and post some feedback on anything that you would switch out, it would be greatly appreciated! Here is the link to the newegg public wish list where I have saved my setup.

Looks pretty good, but I'd try a bigger PSU, for future upgrading. Also, are you staring from scratch, or upgrading... mainly, do you still need an OS, keyboard, mouse...

A couple different power supplies that you might consider in place of the CX:

Strider 600W
PCPC Silencer (if you care about color and want white; modular)
Silent Pro 600W (also modular)
