First time builder, aiming to setup a mini-itx system for modest gaming as well as satisfy a modest budget.
Please offer feedback on what I have thus far, I welcome any recommendations, or if something isn't going to work well together let me know.
You're build is not bad for a budget system, but ScrewySqrl has some good suggestions. Especially about the video card. The 5770 is a good card but you'll be much happier with the 6850.

I am pretty set on the LIAN LI PC-Q11B case, considered the Fortress ft03 but its a bit overpriced and slot load DVD/CD is a pain. So in keeping in line of the maximum card the Lian case allows (230mm/9inches) I'm looking for a good 6850 that will fit.
So far the only cards that fit the bill seem to be the
