I wanted to buy this asus desktop: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FZN2FG4/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=TDILHX381WDP&coliid=I10X0MHW6JEZUS

Then I wanted to add this card to the system: http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-Superclock-Dual-Link-Graphics-02G-P4-3753-KR/dp/B00IDG3IDO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1413670354&sr=8-1&keywords=GeForce+GTX+750+Ti

Would I need to up my power supply? If so would this one work? : http://www.amazon.com/Xpp725-ps-Crossfire-Certifications-Efficiency-Protection/dp/B00JEJZ1MA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1413671907&sr=8-1&keywords=sentry+power+supply
(I notice it says 3 year warranty, if I go cheap on a PSU, could it fail and break the MOBO or GPU? And do I even need to buy one in the first place?)

Then add this display: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0043T7FHK/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=TDILHX381WDP&coliid=I3BLXP4FPP0STV

I haven't had a gaming pc in years and have a limited budget. I think if it did all work it would save me tremendously. Was wondering if anyone out there would know if this would all work if I plugged it in, without having the BSOD showing up all the time.

the psu is the most vital part of the system if it goes there is a chance it could take the whole system down with it.. dont skimp on the psu!! and 725 watt is overkill for that system i suggest buying this..http://www.amazon.com/SeaSonic-550-Watt-CrossFire-Certified-SSR-550RM/dp/B00918MEZG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1413673054&sr=8-1&keywords=seasonic+500+watt+power+supply

yes the gpu will work fine in there, with the new psu :) if your spending the money to buy this your best option is to build your own its real simple theres loads of instructional video's for beginners on youtube and on tomshardware step by step guides , you can get good motherboard ,cpu , ram bundles if you look about on amazon , ebay etc....

I could build a decent gamer for $600-$700, but I probably can't get a square trade warranty on it. Then again if I buy a prebuilt system and I change the PSU or add a GPU, it may void the warranty. I can't get anyone from square trade to answer that question. The only reason that I want that specific GPU, is because I was considering a Nvidia Shield tablet 8 inch tablet and stream games from PC to tablet. Then again I was going to buy a laptop but in order to get a decent one, but that's minimal $1000 on new egg for a MSI or ASUS. I'm in a bit of a pickle, I am trying to build for the future and skimp on gaming laptops and stick to desktops then somehow, I need to figure out how to do remote desktop on a toshiba encore windows signature tablet. Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to do remote desktop with a windows tablet to a windows pc?
