    Finally built my custom RIG

    May seem like shit, but i'm upgrading to the Geforce 640 2gb later. Then maybe Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition:

    PC SPECS:
    i5-2400s 2.5 (Turbo 3.3) (Re-used)
    iMicro Case (ebay)
    350w Bestec PSU (Re-used)
    XFX Radeon HD 5450 1GB (ebay)
    ASRock B75M-GL (ebay)
    250GB HDD (Re-used)

    Pictures:





    Somewhere around a total of $200 - $390

    I wish I could do this, but getting the parts from a bunch of different places scares me.

    I'm guessing you're on a tight budget here.
    Not bad for a starting build.

    Congratulations on your first build.
    I just installed the same motherboard into a business computer, it runs well. Enjoy!
    helt ensam.

    I hope you plan on upgrading that PSU along with that GPU.

    Probably later. Not really planning on upgrading after I get the GT 640.

    Nice one dude! Hope it works fine. I have to re-install a new motherboard, this'll be fun.

    Beat me to it. CPU with 350W is not enough to get clean energy. I would suggest anywhere around 450W - 500W to be safe. Which you already did above.
