I am building a computer for moderate gaming and watching movies on an HDTV for about $650.
Here's what I've come up with, and any advice would be much appreciated.

Look at the Antec Neo Eco 520C power supply. Its an Antec 80+ rated for $5 more than the thermaltake you listed.

For gaming you would get better performance from an Athlon II x3 435 and upping the graphics card to a 5770. The 4850 is kind of weak for 1920x1080 resolution.

You could save money going with the Antec 200 case ($40).
