I'm going to be playing on my HDTV that displays at 1762 x 990, I prefer my games to be set at higher settings, though i will set them lower if its a game like Crysis. Again the Limit is $900 for now. This build will be built within 1-2 months, if the ati 6*** series comes out by then i might consider one of those cards. All of these parts come from Newegg.com, thank you for your posts

    Ok what PSU do you recommend that wouldn't break my budget?

    Some of the newer Rosewill PSUs have been reviewed favorably in competent technical reviews; it seems they are trying to repair their badly soiled reputation.
    Still, you only need 550W for that build. Antec, Corsair, and Seasonic have some models in the 550W-650W range that are often available with decent prices, like the Earthwatts and Truepower New. Right now, the 620W Neo Eco is available for $70: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371031
    You can get a cheap case for less than $35; just make sure it has at least one 120mm fan, preferably two of them (or places for them).
    Also, the WD Blue series drives aren't their fast ones. Get a Seagate 7200.12 (NOT .11), a Samsung Spinpoint F3, or a Western Digital Black. The price should be about the same, $55.

    Well I went ahead and added a Western Digital Black 500gb HD and that Rosewill case I had to my Newegg cart in a combo.

    I also added that PSU to the cart, would have liked a little more power for the future but I think it will work good.

    Final price: $876
