Not a smart build.... An LGA 775 is an EOL chipset. You should keep just the PSU, HSF and Case from that build. I would replace it with the following

CPU - Athlon II X4 620
MOBO - ASUS 785G Micro ATX board
HHD - Samsung Spinpoint F3 500 GB
GPU - ATI 4850
RAM - G.SKILL RIPJAW DDR3 1333 Cas7 RAM
DVD - Cheapest DVD 22x+ Burner you can find.

You seem alot more "techy" than me at this so these parts should be a lot better. Are these the parts you suggested? Also shouldn't the CPU price be a lot higher because it's a quad core vs. a duel core?

I would go with this MOBO instead... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and this GPU instead... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The rest of the parts you guessed correctly! :)  The X4 620 is a budget quad-core at a great price, which is why I recommended it. It is not as powerful as the Intel quads or Phenom II X4's but is the BEST $ valued quad-core. AMD's are ideal for budget minded buiders, as they typically provide the best bang for the buck.

Alright I'm set! Thanks man you've been a great help! And AMD's do seem like the best one's for a budget. I hope you continue helping computer noobs like me so we don't do something drastic! ;)
