Im building a desktop through Cyberpower desktops, putting an AMD Phenom II X4 925 Quad processor, ASUS M4A78L-M AMD 760G chipset DDR2 motherboard, 4GB PC6400 memory, 750 GB SATA-II 3 GB 7200rpm, and thinking about putting the ATI Radeon HD 5450 1 GB DDR2 video card. Dont need to play high demanding games on high settings but would like to be able to play them on mid settings. Any suggestions, or other computers?

What's the purpose of the PC other than gaming?

Get a better CPU.
Why a 760G chipset? Why not a 790 chipset?
Also what's your total budget?

Trying to keep it around 600 and I use it for my graphics design classes so I run programs photoshop, indesign and illustrator at the same time.

The 5450 is quite a poor GPU, only one step up from integrated graphics.

Try and get a 5670, you'll then be able to have more eye candy switched on. And the price difference isn't or shouldn't be that much.

In addition why are you bothering with DDR2? DDR3 is better and just as cheap plus DDR2 is basically 'obsolete' technology.
