awesome but 710's are cheaper than 9550's and perform better, you would also probably be able to get 4GB of ram with the money you save which is a must.

Also Uni-GPU pc's are generally better than Dual-GPU pc's because of scaling etc, and buying a 4870 would have saved you quite a bit.

Don't use one of the first gen Phenom, they really aren't very good. The 720 BE would be a much better processor.

The CM Real Power Pro series are ok, but better for the money would be a Corsair 550vx.

Seagate drives are problematic, go with a WD 320 or 640gb, they will be faster.

I would also go with a 4870 instead, or a GTX 260

I thought he ment he had built it but if you haven't then just go with the items we have suggested.

Also get a caviar black since they provide 100mb/s average read which is about the same as a velociraptor. The average 7200rpm drive will only provide 70-80mb/s read.

definitely get either a phenom II 710 or 720. i personally have the 710 (probably one of the only ones too!) because my motherboard has limited overclocking functionality so i didn't care so much about having the unlocked multiplier. but that motherboard should give you more control over the different settings, so consider the 720. other than that it looks like a good build.
