Was thinking to get it from Newegg and it will be for gaming and surfing.
Have a ATX case with 650W and a monitor 1920x1200, also have keyboard, mouse, speakers and Windows.

HDD - Definitely this one...It is faster than that 500GB...
Samsung F3

Graphics card - The 5750 for that resolution might be a little weak for graphic intensive games...go with the faster 5770

Was thinking to have a blue theme on my new build.
Still searching for a case.

It's best completely avoid Raidmax and Rosewill PSU's. The OCZ PSU suggested above is a much better PSU.
