Default ~Custom PC Builder~

I build Custom PC's for clients. I've had a few customers and their build was successful. I have never ruined someone else's build nor have I scammed them. I also have built myself a PC. That was also successful. So if you need some information or need someone to build a rig, I am the right person. I require $20 for labor and you can send money safely through PayPal. If you have any questions or would like me to build you a PC, then please leave a reply and I will get back to you! Thanks!

My PC Specs:
AMD Athlon II X4 640 3.0GHz (3.47 Overclocked)
8GB DDR3 Ram (2x4GB)
EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti
RaidMax Altas Case
Biostar A780L3B ATX Motherboard
20" Acer Monitor

I've already built that PC but I used the Power Supply that came with the case. It was a 500W Power Supply.

You didn't help your cause here with that answer.

How did I not help my cause. I was explaining that I've built my own also and I listed the parts in my build, and that other person asked me what PSU I used so I told him...

This is an excellent site to learn about PSU. You used the worst option you could choose.

Read up.

The point is, you used a Raidmax PSU in your build. Big no-no. Raidmax PSUs are junk. Most of their PSUs are low-end Sun Pro designs, so your unit is probably something like this unit. (which got a 1/10 and fail award)

Ohh thanks for letting me know. I mean the PSU that came with seems pretty good, but know that you said that, I am going to get a new one. BTW I am also going to upgrade my motherboard and CPU And good suggestions, and I don't want to spend more than $250 or so. If you can help, I would greatly appreciate it!

Power supplies that come with cases are usually garbage. You need to buy a new power supply if you don't want your computer presenting random crashes.
