CPU/Mobo: i3-530 and GIGABYTE GA-H55M-UD2H $185
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $115
HDD: Seagate 7200.12 500 GB $55
Case/PSU: Antec 300 Illusion and Neo Eco 520W $120
Optical: Cheap SATA DVD burner $25
OS (if needed): Windows 7 Home 64-bit OEM $105

Total: $605.

This setup will not allow for gaming. To do any kind of gaming, you'd have to drop in at least the HD 5770 ($150ish) or preferably the HD 5850 ($300ish).

Good build but the Antec Earth watts 650 is 69 dollars after Promo code right now on NewEgg.

That's not really a good deal. The 650W and 300 Illusion combo is $130 total, and the two with the promo code is $140.

Not to mention that a 650W PSU is way overkill for a single PCIe 2.0 slot build, much less an integrated graphics build.

Your right did not think about the 300 illusion combo.

On top of that it does say some gaming so I was going along the line that your build was soon going to change anyways.......
