SO just thought ill Inform you guys that Ill be building a sweet little PC VERY Soon.
I've Already purchased the Processor, Graphic card and the motherboard

Here is what Ive got so far

Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.3 GHz
Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 
Gigabyte H77-DS3H

Those are what ive got so far, Going for a good 430 or 500W PSU, Couple with 4GB of RAM (probably Dual channel), an elite 430 casing And.. a Acer S231H 23" 1080p Monitor :)

Yes I know but I didnt expect to blow out so much money on the CPU and Mobo..
so the budget was kind of crapped.
I asked a couple local Computer professionals, and they said that 450W Is enough (even though the box of my VGA says atleast 500Ghz)
And the RAM I will upgrade in a month.
My original plan was 2x2GB Ram for a total of four to take advantage of dual channel, but then I decided to go 1x4GB Now and then put another 4GB in a month :)

Yes you may want to upgrade your RAM. You board handles a alot so why not. I have 12gb of ram in my pc and I don't come close. The power supply may need to upgrade to. They told me mines will be enough to but it went out pretty fast. Comes to find out they were just trying to make a sale.
