ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:
Been reading on the forums and article section recently and found lots of useful information.
I've never built a PC before so its my first try. The idea is to build a machine that can play games and be upgradable later.
I don't really play extremely graphics intensive games but still wanted good capabilities so I picked the HD 5770.

I did not pick a keyboard or a mouse. Suggestions welcomed!
Below is my attempt at making the PC via newegg
