I'm using a Seasonic 550w for two 7770s and a oc'ed 8120 and that works fine.

OP: Your GPU is fine, fine I would go with the i5 PaulVB6 recommended before. You're set thumb.gif

lol sorry, i tend to lean towards higher end parts. my current rig costed $1,700 XD

for christmas i asked for a $220 860 watt PSU tongue.gif

Biostar H61 MGC,8GB Samsung RAM (ddr3 1600),and a Celeron G860 would be my choice for power.
No overclocking but..spiffy setup anyway.

ehhhhhhh biostar? ive heard that biostar kinda sucks... plus a celeron? i mean you dont have to get top notch hardware like me, but you should spend a little money on some decent quality parts. i think its never a good idea to go with the crappiest, cheapest option, even if your on a tight budget. thats just my 2 cents anyway

Biostar h61 mgc is good quality..much better than the gigabyte h61 i have now..turbos sb/ib up to 3.7 auto too.
Biostar uses quality components on their boards where it counts..I've run many wayyyyy outta spec and they always took it.

hmm, well tbh i havent had any experience with biostar products, so im not really in a postion to judge lol. ive just heard that there not too great, but maybe i heard wrong.

anyway, the cpu u recomended, that would be perfect for email and word document writing and such, but it would really lack power for gaming. a 2 core at 3GHz? you might be able to play games on lowsh settings, but, if i got that cpu for my gaming rig, i would regret it lol.
maybe its decent for gaming though, and it might just be me used to a quadcore at 4.5GHz biggrin.gif

You clearly have no idea then. Biostar make some of the most stable and best overclocking boards around.

OP. Get yourself a good cheap H67 board or similar and a non K series i5 and call it a day.

Biostar makes good products. In my opinion Asus' quality sucks so it seems like we have opposite opinions hehe

I wouldn't go with the h61 chipset because it doesn't support ivy. Go at least with a b75.
