Arrow AMD System Build, Confused in PSU and LCD!

Hi everyone, thanks for Soultribunal first building up my system. And I apologize from Soul because of I really distrubed Soul even once or twice more...

Here is the system we build with Soultribunal;

# Gigabyte / MA790X - UD3P AM2+ (129 $)
# HIS / HD4850 IceQ 4 Turbo 512MB (179 $)
# Corsair / CMPSU-650TX 650W (149 $)
# Corsair / 4 GB XMS2 800MHZ (69 $)
# AMD / Phenom II X2 AM3 550 Black Edition (132 $)
# Philips / 21.6" 220VW9FB (187 $)
# Western Digital / 3,5" 500GB 32MB SATA II 7200 Rpm Caviar Black (76 $)

TOTAL: 921 $ (Except case it will be TT V9 or Akasa Zen - it will change about my buying shop.)

But nowadays I have to cut some budget from my pocket of my economic status. Surely; the motherboard, the cpu, the hdd and the graphic card I didn't want to change them.

I looked into power supply section. Corsair 650TX is about 149$ but OCZ StealthXStream 600W is about 115$. Is there a big performance differences within these brands? (Corsair vs. OCZ)

Then I looked to my LCD. Philips 21.6 inch is about 187 $ but the price gives alert to me 19 inch monitors maybe good but I can't decide which one Philips or Samsung?

Thanks for your helps, please post a comment to me...

I'm just wondering where you're getting those prices from I feel like for $180 a 4870 is easily within reach a 4850 should be had at like ~$130... A TX650 for $150? That's really odd too, that should be easily in the ~$90 range.

In terms of cutting price how much do you want to cut?

I'm not in Canada or America, I'm in Europe so the prices is these. How much do I want to cut, that is a really big question. But I want to do really really big thinks.

It is 921 $ right now without case. I want to cut it about 870 - 900 $ with case. I cut off how much that is good for me.

You can consider about other things, but cpu I want it really. Maybe you can suggest me a new motherboard in same brand (Gigabyte). And maybe I graphic card like 4830... Do you understand me?

Do you plan to crossfire later? if not get the gigabyte 770-UD3 or 770T-UD3P if you want DDR3. Don't forget to get the revision with the SB710

I won't go Crossfire,Raid, Overclock. I need DDR2 motherboard becasue DDR3 Rams are too expensive. So I have to choice my motherboard perfeclty. And I want to use my computer in the future. (about 2-3 years.) So I need a motherboard which is look future too.. 770 Series or 790 Series what is the differences?

Whereabout in europe are you? Seeing your user name I would guess Germany, in which case i would check out those stores:
Computer Shop - Hardware, Notebook & Software by Mindfactory.de
ALTERNATE. Hardware - Software - Entertainment

I used both in the past.

The 770 chipset has basically all that's necessary and some more, making it the price/performance champion for amd boards. 790 allows you to crossfire and that's about all there is to it.

I have to agree, if in the end you need to shave some money the MB can be downgraded a bit. Just make sure on Gigabytes site it will support AM3.

The 770 Chipset is a budget one but still more than capable for your needs.
Although many people have had OCZ's, i've been seeing a lot of them go poof lately or a lot of new ones from RMA being Sold.
So, Avoid OCZ if you can for now. Perhaps the 550W from Corsair? Don't go to far down however because it will shorted the life of a PSU if you run it at or near max capacity.

Regards,
ST

We did a system with you clearly, right? And I choice the parts which are static for me;

# Corsair / 4 GB XMS2 800MHZ (69 $) - I have to buy this because of the cheapest RAM in there and they give us good performance and live warranty.
