    Lightbulb Is this a good (fair) gaming PC?

    Well I'm on a limited budget due to the fact that I have NO job NOR can I get one. So I have to deal with what money I've got. Anyways, I've pretty well came up with the list of specifications on the parts I will want for a good or fair budget gaming PC.

    Here is the list:
    GIGABYTE AM3+ NVIDIA GeForce 7025/nForce 630a Chipset DDR3 1600 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard GA-M68MT-S2
    AMD Athlon II X3 445 3.1GHz 3x512KB Socket AM3 Triple-Core CPU
    Corsair XMS3 4 GB 1333MHz PC3-10666 240-pin DDR3 Memory Kit for Intel Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD CMX4GX3M1A1333C​9
    Force3D AMD ATI radeon HD 6450 2Gb DDR3 HDMI DVI VGA video graphics card PCI express pcie x16 HD 1080P windows 7/vista/XP
    Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus Series 500W ATX12V V2.3 Power Supply (RS500-PCARD3-U​S)
    With a few extra added lights to the case.
    What might you guys say about this? No trolling. Really.
    Goodbye and have a pleasant tomorrow.

    First off you're buying a (costlier) nForce mobo and then getting an AMD graphics ... what's the deal with that? As always, gimme your budget so I know what's possible, but seeing as what you picked is practically the cheapest stuff right now ... I dunno how far you'll get. Ideally you would want at least an ATI HD 5770 or 6950 coupled with any semi-decent AMD mobo/cpu/ram combo.

    First off, your CPU and mobo are not compatible. And then your GPU sucks. On top of that, cooler master PSUs aren't very reputable. Post your budget so that people can assist you.

    They are compatibly, however I don't see the point in sporting an nForce chipset if you're going for an AMD gpu solution. And it's obviously a budget build, hence why I suggested the 5770 or the 6850. Pretty much the decent bang for the buck cards imo

    Aah sorry didn't see it was an AM3 CPU. Thought it was older. Anyways, posting his budget would be helpful to all of us and him.

    no. 4gb is fine for gaming.
    You'd only want 8gb if you have like 5 big programs open at once or rendering and shit.
