The computer I'm using I built six years ago now, it's time to upgrade it.
I will be using the Nvidia GeForce 8400GS card which is almost a year old, my Blu-ray combo which is the same age, and the case.
About the highest resource use would be when I copy and burn movies, so what I'm proposing should be sufficient for my needs. It has been a while since I've looked at motherboards, so I don't have any current information on the Gigabyte motherboard I've listed below. The rest of the parts will be sufficient for my needs. I know there will be someone who will look at the 450W PSU and suggest that I will need more wattage, 450W should be sufficient. The choice for this particular PSU is largely based on its' price.
I have a $300.00 budget to work with, the total of the parts listed below is $314.94 before taxes and shipping. My wife and I are both disabled and live on a very tight budget, this will stretch it to the limit of affordability, so please bear this in mind with any suggestions that are made.
I look forward to any and all suggestions.
