I'm looking to build a $700 gaming computer for Christmas so i thought of these plans
1.The one we have downstairs 0$
2.Motherboard and processors
1.ASUS M4A78T-E AMD 790GX MB w/ X4 955 CPU $230
3.Ram and hard drive
1.Kingston 4 GB : 2 x 2 GB Memory - SO DIMM 204-pin - 1066 MHz ( PC3-8500 ) $58
2.Western Digital Caviar Green WD20EARS 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive $90

4.Blu ray drive
1.Asus Blu-ray internal Sata Drive with Lightscribe $50
5.Graphics Card
1.ATI radeon 6870 $240
6.power supply
7.Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W Continuous Power ATX12V Ver.2.2 / EPS12V version 2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply $70
if you know of any better components for the money please let me know. Also if there is any incompatibility or parts that i do not have (i have a moniter speakers, os and tower at my house). So what do you guys think of this 695 dollar gaming rig.

You don't need a 800watt power supply not even if you are going crossfire later on a 650watt would do for that. I suggest Corsair, Seasonic or Antec as PSU maker example
You will need DDR3 ram with the board as well not DDR2
