Hi.
Good to hear from your again.
Pleasse consider making a few alterations, this will give you a better performing gaming computer.
MB, good. > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813157302 bSupport page. > http://www.asrock.co...el=H77 Pro4/MVP
Download the user manual so you can get to know the product.
CPU. change to i3 3225 Ivy Bridge, more than enough power for your build, > http://www.newegg.co...115-234:$$$$$$$
Case, good. Plenty of room, everything will fit, very good cooling. > http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=3xrNamtIQE4#!
RAM, Good.
PSU, bad, change.
GPU, Poor, we can do better.

You have not included a Optical drive or a OS.

Price up the parts I have selected, then tell us how much you can spend on the PSU and GPU.

I already have a OS, and can I reuse my old optical drive? as my budget is quite low
I have priced up everything and the case is $102 sgd
the mobo and cpu(I chosen i3 core 3320 to lower the budget) is $272
my budget is around $450 so I am thinking of this http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1&gid=3&sgid=1088&pid=1352&psn=&lid=1($131) it stretches my budget to the maximum already so I dont think I can get a psu. will all the parts work together as I believe this gpu is a low profile one, not really sure what that is

this gpu is a low profile one, not really sure what that is

It is not very tall, used where space is limited. A good card.

Please give links to where you might buy the card and one for the PSU, see if a different mix can be made to work inside your budget..

There isnt really any website I go to,I search around the net and then go download simlim price list from here http://www.hardwarez...m.sg/priceLists to check prices of different products, the products I chose are usually products that are recommended to others, what I do is I research up on that product and then look at the price lists and see if it is with in my budget,the tradepac 2 price list states that the cpu and mobo bundle is $252, mynext sells it for $272 so guess I will be getting from tradepac
so $252 + $120 gpu(radeon 6670 lp) from bizzgram + $102(Antec Two Hundred Two) from mynext It adds up to $474

http://www.mynextcom...red-two-bundle/ I can get the case plus the psu for $182

$182 + $252 + $120 = $554 I believe I can fork out another $100 but just asking, as I am purchasing my cpu and mobo from tradepac, I googled it up and there are some that says that they sell used product in new packaging at same price as new ones, how do I know whether it is new or not, I am not to worried about the gpu as its from bizzgram, I am also scared about dead on arrival cpu/mobo, any advice on that.
hahah just comfirming, all these products will work well together right?

Thanks, that is now clear.
Glad to have helped.

Everything will work well together. Just one more check, what RAM do you have???

You could download the MB user manual form Asrock so you can get to know the installation.

Do you need a how to build tutorial???
