yea all you need is a new psy 350 from like OCZ,Aspire,Thermaltake. You dont need a power house like Mr. Majistic is posting. For what yhou are doing the one i made is a great pc and still powerful. Your not going to OC so you dont need the best of the best. Just something good and that will last and work very well.

Would you mind linking me to a power supply that you would recommend?


I think I will get yours for now, and start buying the parts for the one Majistic suggested as well because I am going to need a second computer in the near future anyways.

Thanks you guys, you have been very helpful.

Oh, and one more quick question. On the description for that Case I linked you guys to it says this:

Support motherboard
Motherboards: atx, micro-atx, baby at

Does that mean it will only use those brand of Motherboards?

All good, but don't go with a Radeon card, it doesn't have Shader Model 3.0 or HDR. Go for either this card:

or this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130248

$370 and $470 respectively. The former will beat the X850 XT PE and the latter will destroy the X850XT PE
