Sup people! :) (greetings from Australia!)

Big nub here wanting to ask you veterans for some opinions

Been wanting to get a new gaming Pc for a while now but i dont really have all that money
to get like a uber, hardcore machine. so im settling on a budget one for now.

Here's what i've been looking at so far:

COOLER MASTER ELITE 371 W/O PSU
Deepcool Ice Edge Mini FS
EVGA PCIe GTS450 512MB 783MHz, 1566MHz

Aywun 550W MEGA POWER ECO Series A1-550E Power Supply
PowerCase 580W 120mm Silent Fan Power Supply (i'll get which ever PSU is cheaper in market)
Widetech 650w Power Supply

INTEL CPU CORE i3 2100/3.10GHz
COOLER MASTER 12CM RIFLE BLUE LED FAN 120MM 90 CFM Silent

Gigabyte GZ-Z68X-D3H-B3 MB, LGA 1155, Intel Z68, DDR3 1333, PCI-Ex16, SATA2, SATA3, USB3.0
A-RAM 4GB KIT (2 x 2GB) DDR3 PC-10600 (1333MHz)

Note that i'll be reusing my HDD, DVD drive and maybe the memory.
Total price give or take $650


Here's the website i found them on:

Also Mwave

let me know what you think!
 
CPU and RAM look ok but instead of getting a cheap, high wattage PSU i would get a lower wattage quality one, a brand like Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, XFX are usually the most sought after. If youre in short supply then OCZ and Coolermaster are good too. As for the motherboard, i think you could get something cheaper and not even notice the difference to be honest since you can't overclock on the i3-2100 anyway.

Try this:

i3-2100
1x4GB Corsair XMS3
ASRock H61M-S
Corsair CX-500
VTX HD 6950 1GB
Antec 300

Total: $634

i thought the antec case would be good enough to keep the air flowing
besides i think a MSI gtx 550ti would be cool enough, loud but i can handle that

and i though the mb would do fine
i reconsidered getting a Corsair CX-600v2 600W

i probably just get on card then do Sli later
