More about gaming build
  1. 5670 is pretty weak. slightly weaker than a 4770. i would suggest bumping up to a 5770 or at least a 5750
  2. Good list, except for the PSU. I've never trusted that particular Sirtec unit, and it has never been tested properly.

    The Antec TP-550 would be a safer choice

    Or forget the modularity and go with the Corsair 550VX:

  3. I would switch to a Phenom II 955 BE if you can afford it. I would stay away from the older Athlons if possible.

    That monitor really is not a good deal.

    Dell has good monitors:
    Dell 20in 1600x900:
    $114

    or if you want a step up:

    Dell 21.5in 1920x1080
    $139
    http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/products/Displays/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=320-7438

    The graphics card you picked is not very powerful for that price. You can find radeon 4870s for ~$130-140 new or you can usually pick up a used one for around ~$100.

    The 4870 gets almost double the fps of the 5670.

  4. Ok upgrade the CPU combo for 30 bucks and the video card. that is easy enough thanks
