This is my first build. I want to be able to run most games well. I'm trying to keep it around $800. I'm not sure if the psu I have listed is what I need. Any help on that would be appreciated. Also, is the hdd worth it and should I bump the ram to 8gb or is 4 enough? Thanks!

You'll get more answers if ya edit ya post to list component names .. ... don't wanna give anyone RSI doing clickety click thing :) 

I'd get an XFX PSU .... or Corsair TX 650. This one is $49

However, if ya thinking of adding a 2nd card later on (recommended to extend system life 12-18 months), Id get the 750

$110 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$90 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM - These are $40, better price and better choice.

HD - SATA III (6Gb/s interface) is not doing anything for ya since single drive can't approach SATA II speeds.. Conside SATA II w/ 1TB capacity for same performance.

Case _ Rosewill is the on line world's "Walmart" brand. Recommend the venerable Antec 300

The psu you listed is a 20+4 pin and my mobo is a 24 pin. Does this matter? (I have not a clue). Also, I was curious what ram you were speaking of. There is no link. Thanks for your help!

The 20+4 will work on a 24pin. There used to be/are some motherboards with a 20pin motherboard power socket.

I'd recommend a Samsung F3 1TB hard drive, as they are the fastest SATA II drives and are reasonably priced.

I agree on the Antec 300 case recommendation, and also suggest the Cooler Master 912 as an option to consider. I had the 300 and loved it. Cable management in mid towers is awful, but the 300's airflow is probably the best among mid towers.
