is that true
Not saying that is not a good build....even though some of the prices are lower than you can get now, (the 955 is $125 now)....

I guess if the money was spent foolishly it could out do a box twice it's price....but for a extra $587 you could get a 580 GTX, 700 watt psu, 6 core PhII, 8 gigs ram, and a 64 gig SSD boot drive....it wouldn't even be close....

The budget allows what the budget allows....and few people's budget gets better around the holidays....A better video card would help...

If you plan on building a system, you might buy the parts a few at a time.....Newegg.com - Ballistix sport 2GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model BL25664BA1339 I don't think ram will go much lower....Sign up for the E-mail offers and check the site frequently, offers pop up all the time.....

Something like the ATI 5770 or nvidia GTS 250 should run comfortably on that PSU. Neither require that much Amps or wattage.
XFX Radeon HD 5770 Graphics card - 1 GB - GDDR5 SDRAM

GALAXY GeForce GTS 250 Graphics card - 1 GB - DDR3 SDRAM

uninstall the current drivers you just installed go get the latest ones and reinstall them and see if that solves the problem
still might need to get a gpu because it looks like a capsule on the gpu is open
