I want to make a computer that will allow me to play video games like Steam and emulators (pscx2 and mame32) I want it to run certain programs like unity3d, blender3d, and other drawing software. My brother does more programming than I do so I would like to include that too.
Here's the build I got from my first post!

Actually, since blender3d can only use nvidia cards right now, your build is probably good as it is. Unless you can go to the GTX660 which is $50 more, but might bottleneck your g3220 to.

Edit: So with that said, I just upgraded your CPU a bit to a model than can make use of ddr3-1600 ram. The g3220 could only use up to ddr3-1333.
