  1. The video is fine if you are not planning on gaming anything heavier than maybe WOW at medium settings. It will do fine for HDMI. Get at least a 5770 or better for gaming.

    You do not need a 600W PSU - 450 to 500 watts should suffice. here si a search that I use on Newegg: Various Power Supplies

    The hard drive is slower than it needs to be: get a Samsung Spinpoint F3 instead.
  2. You should also tell us your budget as we can better formulate a build for you. Eloric is right on your situation with the power supply.

    Also if your budget fits any of the builds in my siggy, you should try those out. You'll get some better performance from them that's for sure.
