Hey guys,

I'm thinking of building my first rig, unfortunately I'm on a pretty strict budget. I already have a 650 watt corsair powersupply and a 1tb harddrive and a micro atx case.

Processor: phenom ii x4 3.0GHz http://www.newegg.com/Product/...-19-103-675-_-Product

Motherboard: Biostar A780L3L http://www.newegg.com/Product/...Tpk=biostar%20a780l3l

video card: xfx HD 5770 http://www.newegg.com/Product/...-14-150-462-_-Product

Ram; Haven't picked out a set but I will be getting 4 gigs of ram as i'm stuck with the 32 bit version of win 7.

What are you guys thoughts? Is this is a pretty good budget build? It will roughly cost $374. Any recommendations on parts?

Thanks.

Think i'm going with this cpu now http://www.newegg.com/Product/...?Item=N82E16819103808. I am debating on a 460gtx or a 5770. Not sure if the 460 is worth the extra
30 to 50 bucks over the 5770. Any thoughts?
