Hi, I'm planning to build a computer for regular usage and some gaming. These are the parts that I'm using and would like to have some feedback comments about my build. $600-700 budget gaming computer. Parts are from newegg.
Parts: RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WB Mid Tower Computer Case - $59.99
-Combo Deal: ASUS M4A785-M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G Motherboard + AMD Phenom II X3 720 2.8GHz Black Processor - $181.99

If there are cheaper/better parts to replace in my build, then please say so. Also if there are some kind of flaw or bottleneck with this setup, please advise since this is the first time I'm building my own PC. Thanks

If you're going the AMD route, I wouldn't buy AM2 and DDR2. It's getting phased out. AM3 and DDR3 would be better.
