CPU - AMD Phenom II x4 965 - 3.40GHz, Quad Core, 6 MB L3 cache
RAM - Corsair XMS3 - 4GB DDR3 RAM PC10666, 1333MHz, 4096MB

Can anyone help me decide on a Gpu
That is cheap but performs at a high spec level. Providing:
Native resolution is 1280 x 1024. Hdmi, Vga, Direct X11, DDR3 1gig.

Crossfire not needed (or wanted).

Also is there anything wrong with this build so far?

GPU for that resolution -
At the max this -
HD 5770 - It is actually an overkill, but when you upgrade the monitor, it would help...

Rest of the specs are good, And get this mobo - Comes with USB 3.0 and costs ~same

whats your price range?

You can drop the cpu down to a 955 be and raise the multiplier by 1. That would make it run at the 965 speeds and save you a few bucks.

Zooted: why reduce the operating frequency though?

I should have been more specific. I meant to get the 955 be, so that you can overclock it to the level of the 965 simply by raising the cpu multiplier in the bios one notch. Since it is a Black Edition processor it has an unlocked multiplier, making it super easy to overclock.
