Newegg.ca - MSI KA780GM2 AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

I'd switch out the MSI for this MSI. It's a little more, but you get a MUCH better chipset, and capable onboard for light gaming. (Plus HDMI).

You also shouldn't need to get the SATA cable. The motherboards should have them with since they're retail.

While they are retail, there's only 1 SATA cable. If he plans on running both hard drive(s) and optical drive(s) he'll need an extra SATA cable.

Also, OP I noticed that you were wanting the 4850e. Unless you're wanting a low power computer, I would go with the 7750 Kuma for the extra couple of dollars. You will be much happier. And it's more friendly to overclocking.

thanks everybody as for the sata cable, i need the extra because i have a sata hardrive (external) i plan on using for storage. and I would love to use the Kuma but its a VERY tight budget, so il try and see what i come out with thank you again, more suggestions are welcome.

EDIT: Its okay muffin man thanks for replying at all

and im reading the reviews on the PSU i picked out and im starting to have doubts.. is it alright? or can someone suggest something around the same price range that is better?

The Kuma worked in. i could only get either that other mobo or the new cpu.. so i went with cpu and the dvd drive i picked is now deactivated.. so i need to wait a little bit for another one but this is what the build is now, for $242.51

In all honesty, I would much rather go with the KA780GM2 and the 4850e, than the K9N6PGM2-V and the 7750. You get a MUCH better motherboard, that is a LOT more upgradeable. For the PSU, you don't need that much power. You don't have a power hungry system. Save the money, and use it else where (KA780GM2 and the Kuma could be had then. )

Newegg.ca - Antec earthwatts EA500 500W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.0 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies Only $62 shipped, and you get a much better power supply.
