Is there some reason you can't compile a list yourself then post it for opinions? If not, you're going to at least give us something to go on other than just price. Are you in the US & can you buy online? Do you want an AMD or Intel CPU? Which OS are you going to install - Win7 or Win8 (not much point in XP anymore)? Do you have a Windows disc & product key? 32-bit or 64-bit? Do you have ANY components to use (CD/DVD burner, HDD, monitor, keyboard, etc) or is this a complete build? BTW, you're not going to build a "beast" for $400.

In the other thread you said you have an A6 & 8GB RAM. Seems to me all you need is a video card. Post the make/model of your motherboard & make/model/wattage of your power supply.

OK, here's your motherboard specs: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/F2...

And here's your case w/PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...

Since the case (w/PSU) only cost $35, it should be obvious the PSU is cheap junk. I'm surpised it will even power up a modern system. How's your Portuguese? This site did a review on that PSU & the results were not good:


Just so you know, a decent PSU generally costs more than $35 so when you see a case w/PSU for just $35, there's only one place to cut cost to keep the combo price that low - the PSU!

Here's a Corsair 430W PSU for $20 after rebate. This unit is very popular with users in these forums & comes highly recommended. I have 2 of them myself. The rebate deal expires tomorrow so you'll have to jump on it right away:


As for a video card, it depends on how much you're willing to spend. That PSU will handle just about anything you throw at it. This article will help you to make a video card choice:

You have an APU and motherboard that support dual Graphic with the Integrated VGA, make use of it. Unfortunately You can't provide the exact model of your APU.

For dual GFX:
Sapphire Radeon HD 6570
XFX HD 6570 650M

For dual GFX or Standalone mode:
XFX ATI Radeon HD6670 1 GB DDR3
HIS Radeon HD 6670 1GB (128bit) GDDR5
Sapphire Radeon HD6670 Ultimate 1GB DDR5

It is all depends on resolution you want to play the game with. But In my opinion HD6670 DDR 5 is sufficient for stand alond GFX.

That's a good card. Make sure to get that power supply too or you're going to have problems.
