    Hey Guys, Im interested in putting together a "semi budget" gaming rig and I was hoping to receive some constructive criticism for the parts that Ive selected. Im happy with the price right around 1,100 CA with a monitor, that sounds fair to me.

    Anyways, heres my build : edited by ddp

    Thanks!

    You'll need a more powerful PSU, 450W likely won't be enough. 600W should be ample.

    You may also consider an SSD for your OS drive/game installs, to increase performance - look at Intel or Samsung 830/840 series.

    Thanks. I took what you said into consideration, upgraded my PSU and picked a solid state.. which I'm glad I did, I'm interested to try one out. Thanks again.

    Take in to account you should ideally still use a regular SATA HDD for personal data storage (music, pics, video etc) as a more permanent home for said content (the life of SSDs is by no means short or unrealiable - anymore - but it is not necessarily a replacement for a SATA drive either).

    ANyway, no problem; happy building.
