thats a nice budget PC, but you really dont need more than 4GB ram, you should buy 4gb ram instead of 8gb and get a 890 chipset motherboard, also i reccommend a ati 5830, here in the UK, the 5830 outperforms the 450 by a long shot and is yet cheaper!

also if you want a truely futureproff rig, you should really be looking at boards that support atleast USB 3.0 and SATA 6gb/s both of which your chosen mobo doesnt support either.

I'd be weary of that PSU. But overall it is still a pretty decent build another reason to buy an AMD GPU is I don't think you can do sli on that board.

Most people choose known quality brands like XFX, corsair, antec, seasonic, or silverstone for PSU's.

Also you should really be looking into a mobo which supports AM3+ CPUs for future upgrades.

My another vote for a PSU change.. Also your hard drive.. I guess it is a 5400 RPM hard drive which itself is quite slower compared to a conventional 7200 RPM hard drive.. And the power savings are really not worth it.. So get something like a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB.. Rest of the build looks fine..

+1 Emperus. Also, you may want to fill out the build advice form - if this is for gaming, the Phenom may not be the best choice. The 450 also falls into that category. That case doesn't strike me as the highest quality. Lastly, IF you stick to AMD, maybe get a more modern chipset, 800 series.
