Alright, I'm planning on building a new PC that I can use to play mostly RTS games and simple FPS, as well as minecraft :D  . Also I'm planning on running a minecraft server for my friend and I only off of it. My budget is around $650 Canadian.

My brother is an internet reviewer and he is able to get me a 400gb SSD and 8gb or ddr3 1333 so im set in that regard.

My Monitors resolution i believe is 800x800 :sol:  so i don't need anything crazy for graphics, though i will upgrade my monitor down the road sometime.

There are a few parts that need to be used and are going in no matter what the community says for various reasons. These parts are:
Lian Li PC351b
Some sort of DVI to VGA adapter.

This is the list of parts I've chosen:
Case: Lian Li PC351b

Mobo: Asus M4A78LT Matx

CPU: AMD Phenom 2 x2 555

Ram: Not needed, my brother is getting me some for free due to his review connections

HDD: Not needed, my brother somehow managed to land me a 400gb ssd to use in this build :D 

PSU: Mushkin Volta 650w

GPU: XFX 5670 1gb

OS: Windows 7 64bit

Wireless Card: ASUS USB-N13 802.11N USB2.0 Wireless Network Adapter

Monitor: Not needed as i have one around!

This comes out to $634 cdn which is a nice price for me. Please let me know what you think of this build!

Instead of Mushkin 650W PSU - Get This
Antec Truepower New 650W Modular Power Supply ATX12V V2.3 Active PFC 80 Plus SLI Ready 120MM PWM Fan
