Hi All,

minhaz4u, not knowing what your budget is or how you plan on using your machine, I'm suggesting that you increase the size of your Hard Drive. You can buy a 320 GB Drive from New Egg for $80.00. If you're a Gamer you 'll want to go with 2GB of RAM. RAM is very cheap now. In addition you'll also want to go with a Direct X10 Video Card from either Nvidia or ATI/AMD. I'm not familiar with MSI so I can't give a opinion, good or bad. However DFI & ASUS make excellent AMD Motherboards.

Hope this helps

500W is enough, that system won't even take that much power.

And you don't "send" watts into your system, so having 1200W wouldn't blow anything, it would just be a waste.
