"phew"..alright after several weeks of struggling to find out a good gaming computer bui;d for around 400, i think i finaly did it.

The specs are....

CO-9050006-WW Corsair Accessory Air Series SP120 120MM Twin Pack CPU

Hard drive- Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS Hard Drive

Mother Board- ASRock Socket AM3+/AMD 760G/DDR3/SATA3&USB3.0/A&V&GbE/MicroATX Motherboard 960GM/U3S3 FX

Ram- Kingston HyperX Blu KHX1600C9D3B1/4G 4GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM

Processor- Phenom II X4 965 3.40 GHz Processor - Quad-core

Power supply- Thermaltake Power Supply 240-Pin 500 Power Supply TR-500

Case- Xigmatek ASGARD 381 CCC-AD38BT-U03 Black Steel / Plastic / Metal Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Is this a good case? I don't really know if it'll do the job or not....

Graphic card- MSI R7770-PMD1GD5 Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

And windows 7 64 bit operating system

Like with the case, i want to know if it'll work with my build or i need to get something else,

here is the case.

I also thank everyone who helped get this build done.

The total is over 450, plus discounts....it should be a bit over $400.

The case looks quite good with quite some nice features. As for the rest, the motherboard is the critical part here. Its low-end components won't work well with phenom ii 965. GIgabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 should do this job much better, with its price pretty close to the Asrock board you picked. Furthermore, this motherboard from Gigabyte has 20-pin usb3.0 header, which will work with usb3.0 port on the Xigmatek case ( Asrock one doesn't have this header, which makes usb3.0 ports on the case UNUSABLE without purchasing an additional usb3.0 card ).
