My first build ( hope im doin it right)

Hey guys took me a while to find a good forum, i hope you guys can help me out with my computer, that i will be building. And i see a lot of people order their parts from new egg, but i think its an american site, and im from Canada so i choose tiger direct heres my build, i hope everything is compatible, i just have a feeling im missing something, please feel see to give suggestions or anything else. I am mainly using this for gaming, but i only play 2-3 games ( MMORPG games ), so it just needs to be slightly better than average running it. Thanks alot of the help.

More about build hope doin right
  1. An HD 4670 is a slow video card; you could get an HD 4770 for less (http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=11830BD3533&vpn=GV-R477UD-1GI&manufacture=GIGABYTE) or for a bit more a much faster HD 5750 (http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=11830BD6645&vpn=GV-R575D5-1GD&manufacture=GIGABYTE). Also check prices at DirectCanada.com, Newegg.ca, BestDirect.ca, etc.

    They are, but your build isn't very good for the money. Get a better video card and a better PSU. You probably like the case, but I doubt the PSU is a quality unit.
