Not very bad budget. If you are running stock CPU cooling then i`ll recomend do change it.

which one would you recommend ..
post #9 of 36
AMD Phenom II X4 965

Kingston HyperX 4 x 2gb (10$ off promo code)

COOLER MASTER Elite 430 RC-430-KWN1 Black Steel / Plastic Computer Case


ASRock 970DE3/U3S3 AM3+ AMD 770 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard


HIS iCooler H777F1G2M Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Rounds up to about $415 before shipping on newegg.

This video card will run the games you way to play on at pretty good frame rates.

I changed the CPU because AMD FX is pretty horrible, and AMD Phenom is a pretty good gaming CPU.

Changed the PSU because 500 watts is pretty overkill.

And changed some other things as well. Take a look!

First of all I would go with FX4XXX series, as having two extra cores does not help very much in games. Try to look for higher clocked FX4XXX chip if possible.

Secondly GT 630 is a terrible card for gaming. I would definately try to raise the budget for Radeon HD 7750 or GTX 650.

Also which resolution will you be using?

EDIT:

What do you have already, full list please smile.gif If it's not too ancient, I think it can be upgraded.
