Just wanted some suggestions on what I should change in this very basic gaming build (I am only planning to play WOW, KOTOR 1 & 2, and maybe ES Oblivion. I will also do some 3D animation on this PC.
The reason I went with the tri-core 720, is because I really like the possibility of unlocking the fourth core.. :)  and its a great processor.
And yes, I know combos are available for alot of these....including the mobo and processor. The reason I didn't use it is cause if the build is changed it gets confusing lol.
I was planning on sticking with biostar because of its great bios OCing layout...but I'm open to other fourth core unlockable mobos that have nicer built in graphics card.
Also, I was planning on building this and in the future upgrading the graphics card.

If I can lower costs in any ways...that would be great.
But I'm willing to invest another 50$-75$ for any component that really lacks power...and you think should be changed/upgraded.
