    Hi there,

    I need to build a system for a friend on an extremely tight budget. Just wanted to check compatibility and see if you guys have any suggestions of exchanges I should make. I will list the components below.

    CPU cooler: Xigmatek praeton low profile. Xigmatek CAC-D9HH4-U02 PRAETON LD964 Low profile H...
    Case: 1life with 500w PSU incorporated
    ram: Corsair value select 1333 mhz ddr3
    HDD: WD caviar blue 500 gb 16 mb sata III
    CD drive: Cheapest I can find
    MOBO: ASUS M5A78L-M LX AMD760G (780L) SKAM3+ ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS AM3+ AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD ...

    This will be use for productivity reasons only, it will not play any games at all, just schedule keeping and browsing.

    How about the A6-5400k? it is also trinity, just Dual Core and cheaper. The max budget is 300€ and it needs to be from local shop, so I cant buy from Newegg (couldnt anyway since I live Portugal)

    For what you are doing the A6-5400K will be fine.

    I am kinda hurting on the PSU, the case comes with a 500w one, but I always think of them as somewhat shady, and at 25€ case and PSU combo... Do you think it will be ok?

    Find out the OEM of the powersupply and I could tell you. Considering the power draw it should be good enough...
