AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus


G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB


OCZ Fatal1ty OCZ550FTY 550W

I have a couple of hard drives and DVD drives laying around so i'm ok there. I'm not exactly experienced at putting a system together so thought I'd get some input here and make sure everything i plan on getting is compatible with each other. Any suggestions? Changes you would make?

Don't really need a vid card right now, but i might pick one up during the black friday sales so i can do a little bit of gaming eventually.

I would pick a better motherboard. The case you chose is nice but you could get a cheaper one and put that extra money towards a better board. Also the G.Skill Ram is good, but should be purchased as a 2x2GB Combo to get dual channel memory. Also picked a better quality power-supply unit here if you so want it, but yours will work just fine too.

Processor: AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus 3.0GHz

Case: Pixxo CG-8402 Black SECC 0.6mm ATX Mid Tower Computer Gaming Case

Motherboard: ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Power-supply: CORSAIR Builder Series CMPSU-500CX 500W ATX12V v2.3 Active PFC Power Supply

RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-4GBNQ

Price = $365

Good luck!! Any more questions just ask.
