Build #2 budget gaming build $300.
OK so my friend wants a budget desktop where he can play some games high settings not important, just playable. I fortunately work at Goodwill. We get computers every now and again and Most of the time we recycle them. However after building a computer I have started stripping off stuff and buying them. They really have no idea about computers so they MODESTLY price this stuff. So with the said I have a few things that I obtained MUCH cheaper than retail price.

But basically I just want to make sure that there is no glaring bottlenecking, that I have sufficient parts to play most games (again not necessarily high settings), that the stuff is compatible, and lastly I have a nice power supply, but I would like to know if a 350 watt would work for this. Thank you for any input!

CPU: Intel Pentium G620 Dual-Core 2.6GHz $70

GPU: Radeon HD6770 1 GB DDR5 $90 after rebate

Case: some mid tower case $50

Motherboard: BIOSTAR H61MGC Intel H61 LGA1155 $50

Ram DDR3 4gig $23

Goodwill products (Very sweet deals)
Hard drive: $5 120gig with windows vista

Optical drive $3

Power supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6817711002 $6 (looks like its a legit power supply too)

Everything looks good to me. Just make sure that the hard drive and optical drive are the SATA kind so that they are compatible with the motherboard.

350w PSU would be borderline but acceptable. Might as well grab that Thermaltake one at that price though.

Awesome thankyou for the reply. Yes both are SATA. And those goodwill products are already purchased. I just wanted to try and save it if possible. A lot harder to find than the 350 watts
