I'm building a new gaming computer on about a $600 budget. The computer I have now is a Dell Insprion 531. These are the parts I'm buying to build my new system, NA means that I'm using the part from my old computer. I just want to know if everything is compatible and will work. Any advice for parts is welcome also.

Er.. Is mine a good build or no? I wanted to pick most of the parts on my own, do all the research. I was just hoping for some suggestions.

Basically, I am not really liking the i3s. I prefer the X3s a lot over i3s.

gkays built is good.
Please pay attention :
Those are neweggs special bundles/combos.
Special bundles won't stay for long.
Go get them ASAP if you want them.

This build has two cases. (Antec 300 + NZXT M59) Make sure you don't order both. ;)  If you drop the antec 300 and the OCZ 600 you can bundle this PSU with the hard drive he suggested and be all set using the rest of that build.
