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.

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.

Please fill this out:

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.
