I am getting ready to order the parts to build a new tower. I plan on using it for light gaming, web browsing, and movies. I also would like to set up dual-monitors for schoolwork. I will post the parts I intend to buy and hopefully those more knowledgeable can tell me if everything matches up correct.

Rosewill Legacy Q10 ATX mid tower.

Asus F2A85-V PRO FM2 AMD 3.0 HDMI

AMD A10-6800K Richalnd 4.1 GHZ processsor with AMD Radeon HD 8670D

Mushkin Enhanced blackline 8gb (2 x 4gb) 240 pin DDR3 1600

Kingston SSdnow v300 series 120 gb SSD

Western Digital 500 GB 7200 RPM internal hard drive

I would spend a little more on the RAM and get 2100mhz ram if possible, makes a big difference on the APUs. Other than that, should be fine for the tasks you list.

Thank you for the quick response.. What brand do you recommend for the RAM?

If you want to do light gaming with that build you may want to look into faster ram because the APU's perform better with faster ram. Also the new APU's from AMD are supposed to come out this month and you may want to wait and see if there is a price drop on the Richland's or just get the new one if the price is the same.

Corsair/Mushkin/Kingston/G-skill/A-Data/Crucial are all good, tons of others I have forgotten no doubt. :)

Everything looks good and should work fine together. Some changes you might want to consider:
-If you plan to use the integrated Radeon GPU for gaming, get the fastest RAM you can (within reason), since it shares the system memory (no dedicated video RAM). You can probably find 2133 MT RAM for a similar price or a few $ more.
-You could balance the extra cost of the RAM by getting a smaller power supply, unless you plan to upgrade, for example, add a dedicated video card. 500W is a lot more than you will really need otherwise.
