Okay, in a couple of weeks, I may be building a system. I just wanted some external advice to double check my parts choices.

I want to build a new system around my current video card ...

MOBO:
ASUS M4A77TD AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

MEM:
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ - Retail

PSU:
COOLER MASTER Silent Pro 600 RS-600-AMBA-D3 600W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active ... - Retail

Switch the the power supply to a quality brand such as corsair or OCZ.

Switch the case.. Rosewell is pretty low quality. I would recommend a Cooler Master case. They have good cheap cases.

^ what he says.

CM PSUs will work, but may not last as long as other well know quality brands.

What's your budtet? What OS? What monitor resolution?

You won't have a problem with that video card, but nVidia is a terrible choice right now. The new ATI 5xxx series are much more powerful, more future proof and cooler/quieter. There is no reason to choose nVidia right now.

Here's some better RAM: G.Skill Eco DDR3 1333 mhz CAS Latency 7 for $98. The RAM you've choosen is cheaper, but doesn't have great specs. For $2 more, you can get these excellent sticks.

Second everything else. Another option for good PSUs would be Antec Earthwatts.

Check out the thread "How to Ask for New Build Advice." Much of the info we get from that is crucial to giving good feedback.
