Hi guys. I'm new to these forums but I've read quite a few threads on the site before. Anyways, I'm finally taking the plunge building my first pc. The main use will be gaming btw.

NZXT Apollo Case 69.99

Antec Earthwatts 500w PSU 69.99

G.Skill Ripjaws 4gb DDR3 83.99

Asus M4A785TD-M Evo 79.99

AMD Phenom II 550 Callisto 3.1GHz

EVGA GTX 460 Superclocked 768MB 209.99

WD 1 TB 7200 RPM That i already have

Lightscribe DVD RW that i have already as well

Do you guys think these look okay for gaming? And do you think That the Dual Core will be a bottleneck?

Get this GTX460, save you $30 (If youre not confortable with Sparkle, get the normal EVGA version and do your own OC):

Then get this Mobo + RAM combo, saves you another $25 and you get SATA6+USB3

Heres a CPU+Case combo, you get a better CPU for $35 less.

Finally consider this slightly cheaper Antec PSU, does the job fine for $10 less

Saves you $100, while still getting a better CPU/Mobo.
