The build looks ok.
But if you have budget of 600-700 then you should be looking at AMD 955 and not the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T as the 6 cores aren't too much of a boost in at gaming so the amd 955 is just enough.

Also the mobo costs too much as it can't do CF in a future it might be needed to add on some years for the computer to last for.

If you want good gaming rig look at spending somethink around $800, here is a build a put together that should give you some pretty decent fraps.

( you can crossfire in a future if you need to with this mobo.)
