My first build - budget gaming

So i'm totally new to this, I guess I know some of the basics but would like some input and see if this rig would come out okay.
Using this desktop for MMO gaming mostly and other school work.

CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition
Motherboard - ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO
RAM - 4GB DDR3 PC12800 1600MHz (2x2GB)
Video Card - XFX ATI Radeon HD 5670
Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"
Cooling - Cooler Master Hyper TX3
Case - Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Optic Drive - Some ASUS 24x dvd/cd burner
Power Supply - Some 500w power supply, not sure what to get yet

Looking to keep this in the 6-700$ range ballpark

  1. Ouch with that budget and a lot less you could, via juicy combos hit far far better than a HD 5670 with an 80+ PSU included


    Optional Item

    Scythe YASYA cooler $35

  2. Your the man, will these combo deals still be here in a couple months? Im just planning ahead so far
  3. Usually combos reset at the start of a new month - u are welcomed ^^
  4. got my money a little early...before I go out and buy this...with these specs would I be able to play some MMOs at max settings?
  5. and anyone else feel this is a good build for the price?
  6. The 955BE/768 GTX 460 would allow for Full HD but you may have to either go without or go easy with the AA/AF depending on game title hehe
