New AMD Build - Under 600$

Hey Guys,
I just wanted your input on my order before I commit to buying it. Two weeks ago I purchased a new Antec 900 case with the 650W PSU in it for 130$ CDN. I then ordered a new 1TB Samsung Spinpoint for 60$. I also have a free copy of Windows 7 at home so no need for the OS. With those purchased now I wanted to get the rest of my order completed and this is what I came up with.



With taxes, shipping and an additional 16$ from promo codes this comes up to 378$ CDN and that doesn't count the 20$ Mail-In Rebate I'll get from OCZ.

This is not a gaming machine. It will only be used for some moderate Photoshop, watching movies and browsing the net. I don't need a videocard as the onboarch card should do the trick. What are your thoughts? Should I pull the trigger?

Thanks for checking it out.

Derek

Thats a good price for an Asus 880G but i'd hit a pair of Mushkins 1600/CL7 rather than OCZ for RAMs ^^

Any reason why?

The reason why I'm getting the OCZ RAM is because it combo's with the PCU and the Asus is only on sale if sold alone. The Mushkins don't have a combo and I want to save as much as I can on this but still get a decent system.

That's what I wanted to hear. :D  Thanks for the quick responses. I think I'm going to go with it. It's the best packaged deal I came up with in the last week or so at that price.
