Here's what I don't like....
The case: Raidmax is one of the worst case makers on the planet (Antec 300)
The Ram: Really need 2 sticks of ram (2X1GB) or (2X2GB)
The Hard drive: The Samsung 500GB Spinpoint F3 is only $55
The CPU: For a few more bucks get the Phenom II X2 550 or Athlon II X4 620
The MB: ECS makes some of the worst motherboards on the planet.
If you don't plan on doing CrossFire get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... otherwise if you are planning to do CrossFire then you should get a board with either the 790GX or FX chipset. The FX is better because you can CrossFire at 16X 16X.
The video card is decent, but I would go with at least a 5770

+1^ Raidmax is junk. I built a PC for a friend once and he had bought a RAIDMAX Smilodon. It was flimsy and had this awful chunky plastic full door. And the worst part is that it came with a ton of 80mm case fans and they all daisy chained together! You couldn't get the side of the case to more that 30 degrees without having to unplug the fans. To this day I have nightmares about that case.
