Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
Newegg.com - Transcend TS-RDP5K USB 2.0 Card Reader


After further playing around i found a good balance in what i wanted

Personally I wouldn't trust a lower end/tier power supply in any of my systems. Thats one thing you want to make sure is a quality product as if it goes or has dirty power it has the ability to knock out others parts in your system along with.

I take it you're build is in american funds, also to note that this will not be able to any gaming/video output as the P series Sandy Bridge boards do not use the onboard graphic unit in the SB chips.

Definitely get a different psu for your build. If you don't want to get a discrete video card then look at a Z68 series cboard for the onboard video if you want the 2500K cpu.

If you want the best onboard video then go with an AMD Llano based build...the integrated video on that setup is DirectX 11 capable, way better than the Intel HD integrated video right now.

^ as said before, get a better psu. it will serve you better in the long run.

Also the AMD apus are the best right now for integrated graphics, may i suggest AMD A8-3850 APU Bundle w/ Asus F1A75-M PRO Motherboard at Memory Express Computers

xD

Went to Newegg.com as that is where you linked from the first time.

My laptop screen isn't big enough to fit the whole shopping cart in one screen shot so I had to take two shots for you.





For what I through together its about $491 US before shipping and any applicable taxes. You might be able to shave a few more dollars off he and there. These parts also give you the ability to expand down the road...adding a discrete video card, more ram and so on.

Note...this does not include mouse, monitor and keyboard as I am not sure whether you need any of that or not. If you do, it makes it even more difficult to fit a budget that tight.
