Final thoughts on workstation PC

I'm trying to build a computer for very light gaming, MS Office stuff, Skype, etc. Plan on running win. 7. Thoughts? Budget is up to $550 (without monitor), currently is around 460 with windows.

-AMD A8-5500 3.2GHz

-MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 Micro ATX FM2 Motherboard

-Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1333 Memory

-Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

-Apex SK-393-C ATX Mid Tower Case

-Antec EarthWatts Green 380W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply

-Asus DRW-24B3ST/BLK/G/AS DVD/CD Writer

  1. Swap your power supply out for cosair 430w unit or 500 w unit. It give you a little more head room if you add a gpu latter on in the build.
  2. bump?
  3. get 2 sticks of ddr3 1866 not 1 stick of 1333.

    i'd rather have the antek listed instead of one of corsairs cheap line.
