So, I had a friend help me find all these parts and I wanted to know what other people had thought. So please leave your feedback here. Keep in mind that I am not asking anyone to link me to other parts so that I can switch something out. Just basically show/tell me what you would have done differently while staying in this budget range.(under 600) This is the build I'm going with and all I really want is for the users here to give me their opinions about this Budget Build. :p 

Anywho... here are the links and names to the parts that will be in this build.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and I'm hoping for positive feedback and constructive criticism. :p  Let me know what is going to be outdated to the extent of MMORPGS. =)

I have an opinion, but since you won't place any value on it, I'll kindly withhold it.

Some of your parts selection was good, some OK. My only real objection is to the MB. It's cheap, has poor voltage regulation, is almost two generations old, etc.

"constructive criticism"

We can't give any because you've already made it clear you will ignore it.

We could probably put together something better for cheaper, but if you're bent on ignoring advice...

Hmm by my count u had spent in access for $53x so for configs around that country one could hit better $$/frames i.e full blown 955BE + HD 6870 The GTX 460 SE is actually a cut down version as well with 288sp (vs 336)

$548AR

I don't see why you'd buy a MicroATX form factor mobo when you are building a PC in a mid-tower case. Just seems to me that you could get more features and a better mobo that is just an ATX form factor.

EDIT: Just saw that you were building in a microATX case as well. If this is going to be your main PC, I would go with a ATX form factor case. More space.

I would have been more clear about what I was trying to type, but I had to go to bed so I would wake up to go to school and work. But what I want IS advice and opinions. I just don't want people saying, "OH YOUR ENTIRE BUILD IS LAME, GO WITH THIS!!! [insert link here]". Sorry if what I typed was contradicting. =/ But advice is welcomed.

Also, the computer ran very well after it was all put together. :p  I just need to start playing games on it and see what performance I get out of it. But my friend left it on all night while monitoring temps and they were "very low". So I guess that's good? Lol
