Every thing is fine but switch the GTS 450 for an GTX460. For the hard drive WD is pretty good but you should stay away from some Seagates.

here's a more good for gaming pc around $660. dont know what your budget is but will speculate.

cpu:atlhon II x3 445
mobo:Asrock 870 extreme 3(x8/x8)
psu/hdd:xfx 650watts/samsung f3 1tb
gpu:sapphire 6850
case:cm haff 912
dvd drive:cheap dvd sata drive
ram:mushkin enchance blackline 4gb cl7

this build is much faster in gaming. cause of the gpu. gpu matters always in games and not much on the cpu.and the mobo and psu will let you xfire you can bring another 6850.

total:$659.92

^ good solid build there, but go for a phenom II 955. Unlocking that cpu to a quad core isn't guaranteed. Also, I'd go for the Asus DirectCU 6850 for the same price.

thing is, i'm buying everything that i listed here @ memoryexpress..everything in newegg.com is cheaper but i'm in canada xD so yea, do you think what i listed here is pretty good?

oh and the ram, it says w/ INTEL XMP is that ok even tho i'm using amd processor

im not saying that you have to unlock it. phenom II 955 would be a great choice too. i just tried to put a budget gaming cpu, he didnt state how much he's budget is

Why not use newegg.ca? yeah swap your gpu for a 6850 for much juice. then seagate 7200.12 1tb or a samsung spinpoint f3 1tb.
