Do this for sure. Same price, better everything.

Better CPU, HDD, case, PSU.

It is the perfect build for you yet it costs $4 less... lol
FX 4300
MSI 970A-G43 ATX AM3+
Toshiba 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM
GTX 650Ti
Corsair 500W ATX12V
Rest same as your choice....

I would go with the 650 ti but later down the line I was going to upgrade to 7770 crossfire and 650 ti does not have SLI support :p  (Also do I really need gold certified PSU?)

If you can spend $500 and want a Crossfire in the Future and want to overclock then go for this build I also add 2x8GB memory sticks...

You cannot corssfire on that board. The second card will only run at 4x which will give no performance increase. Also, that board has no MOSFET cooler and has been shown alot of times to overheat. DO NOT get it.

Also, the cx500 is WAY worse than the antc vp-450 because the cx line from corsair uses inferior capacitors an should be avoided.
