Hello i have saved up $1,000 to build a computer for my girl friend.
The computer will only need 1 graphics card. She will be playing wow and listing to music.
I will not be over clocking.

Parts I already have
F3 Samsung 500g HD, and windows 7 64bit. Also for now ill be hooking up my logitec z-5500 speakers to this computer.

Parts i think i need.
Cpu - Intel Core i5-2500
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The reason i pick the i5-2500 and not the 2500k is cause i will not be over clocking so i dont need the 2500k right?

GPU - EVGA GTX 570
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I Dont know much about PSU so if you think there is somthing better out there for me plz let me know.

Ram - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case - Antec DF-35
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I have had a antec 300 case before i really liked it, this case looks nice to me but im a noob here.

Motherboard - I Have not decided on a board yet I am thinking this 1
ASUS P8P67 LE
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If somone could plz give me a hand here and let me know what i can do to improve this build i would appreciate it.
Thx

If your not overclocking, Crossfiring/SLI then you could go with a H67 motherboard and 1333mhz RAM to save some cash, just a though.

The rest of the stuff seems fine, I myself don't know too much about PSU's but Corsair is one the brands that are seen as reliable.

Just my 2 cents, Someone will be able to give better answer then me :p
