Both the graphics cards have similar performance...The HD 4850 would be faster but the 4770 would be more power efficient.

And you still have not said what you will be using the PC for...
As for the OS, yes that is the one...

And check out this combo -
X2 550 + Gigabyte 770
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

I just built a PC for my friend using this CPU. I was able to unlock all the remaining 2 cores easy... And you get extra cache too...But the core unlock would be a hit or miss so not pretty sure about that though as the unlocked cores might not be stable...
But as a gaming CPU, even the X2 550 is very good because of its higher clock speed and cache...
But the X4 620 is a very good multitasker as you get all 4 cores...

^ That is a good setup...

And just a suggestion...do try to learn a little about overclock. The 2.6GHz clockspeed of that quad might be slow for some games, so overclocking it just a little higher would give better results...And am pretty sure that the stock HSF can handle 3GHz clock speed without much issues...

Well if you dont feel the need for 4 cores, then the X2 550 is also a very good alternative...
So just browse around for reviews on the Quad and the Dual core and get the one that you like...

http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/525772-official-pheno...

And after you learn well about overclocking, do get an aftermarket CPU cooler, that can push the 550 even higher...

And as for the RAM, Yes it is good...But if you are too worried about the reviews there, get this one...

I would not get x2 550, get either x4 620 or x3 435. You are on a budget built and probably want it to last as long as possible in which case x3 or x4 will be much better. And You can overclock x4 620 with stock cooler 3-3.2GHZ easily, no need for aftermarket cooler, put saved money towards better video card, You might want to look at HD5750. For OS if the one You have is retail then there will be no problems reusing it , if it is OEM then it is not supposed to be used on another PC but there is way to do it.

It is not glue and do not use glue. HSF's come with it preapplied and You do not need any unless You remove and reinstall HSF

If the OS came pre-installed when you bought the PC from any vendor, then most probably it would be an OEM as the vendors get bulk discounts on OEM versions and pre-install them on the PCs they sell...

But if you have the OS installation disk and the serial key with you, then there might be a chance to reuse it...This thread might help...
