TLDR. Just checked the headings.

Motherboard - stay away from Intel motherboards. They're not the fastest and they overclock like crap. Choose something like the Asus P8P67 or P8P67-M.

Hard drive - Stick to well known and reliable brands like Western Digital, Samsung or Seagate.

CPU - the i3-2100 is a really low-powered CPU. If you are picking this because of budget, then I'd suggest waiting a bit for the AMD Bulldozer parts to show up.

The PSU is fine.

RAM - Look at the Mushkin Silverline or Kingston HyperX Blu RAM kits instead of the Corsair RAM. Their 1.5V config works better with the Sandy Bridge power usage.

Overall you've got the right idea here. You just need some tweaking. Here's what I'd recommend:

Case: Antec 200 V2
PSU: Corsair CX600
Motherboard: Asus P8H67-M LX
CPU: Intel Core i5-2300
RAM: Mushkin Silverline 2x2GB DDR3 Kit
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB
Optical Drive: Almost anything from LG, Asus, Samsung, Lite-On or whatever you can find
Graphics Card: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD5770

Screen, keyboard & mouse all depends on you. Remember a mousepad as well.

^Psu is fine, but I'd look at upping the graphics card to a 5770, it will still handle that no problem
lose the hitachi drive, go for a more reliable brand, Western digitals are popular and reasonable price-wise,keep it to 7200 rpm tho, not a 5400rpm

could you tell us what you intend to use the system for, as that affects certain component choices, and what your topline budget is and we may be able to suggest the most appropriate items for better prices with a little more information from you

Intel DH67GD, P67, LGA1155, DDR3, 2xPCI-E, Lan1000, SB7.1, Sata, Raid

DH67GD is not a P67, it's a H67. H67 is what you want to choose if your not planning on running SLI/Crossfire. If you do, you want P67.

You cannot overclock i3, so the motherboard is not an issue there either.

Id go with Samsung F3 or WD Black, not Hitachi.

The video card is a bit weak, you should go for 5770 or 6850 at least.

A quality 400w psu is all you would need with that cpu and either of those video cards, even 6870. If you go P67 and want SLI/Crossfire or plan on going with a quad core at a later date, I would stick with the 600w unit you chose or a Antec or Seasonic unit.

Thx for helpfull amswears. I will use the PC for gaming mostly. I dont need extream grafics just mid grafics and no lag :) 

Budget is 800$~
If u can recomend me something around this price i will be thxfull!
May 18, 2011 1:37:39 PM

We have already given you our suggestions, you just need to tweak your original build you listed.
May 18, 2011 2:53:31 PM

Do you need the monitor and the operating system in the budget?

hello thx of advice of u guys this is the build, what do u think? (budget is 800$)

thx in advance
May 20, 2011 7:18:45 PM

i would get a 6870 or a GTX 560Ti with that processor. :D  just a thought.
May 20, 2011 7:43:51 PM

Is there a reason you took the H67 over the P67 for the motherboard?

See the build advice form in my signature. Looks pretty good overall. Yes, you could get a more powerful GPU if it's for gaming. Do you plan on overclocking - if so you'll need a P67/Z68.
May 20, 2011 9:15:37 PM

You have selected the Intel® Core™ i5-2500K which will allow you to overclock the processor in both the core clock speed and on the Intel HD 3000 graphics. The problem is that the H67 won’t allow you to overclock the core clock speed. The P67 is will allow you to overclock the core clock speed but not the IGP. Now the Z68 board will allow you to overclock both the core clock speed and the IGP. So I would advise that you change the board you have from a H67 to a P67 or Z68 board.

^+1, but if he's not overclocking it won't matter. And he's adding a discrete GPU anyways.
May 20, 2011 10:33:22 PM

Well the sapphire HD 5830 is only $99 with a promo code on newegg look at their current email promo for the code. The samsung f3 would be a better choice from amazon and the antec 300 illusion is only 54.99 also from newegg. The OCZ 550w semi-modular PSU is also 59.99 with a promo code on newegg till 5/23. For the price of that case you could get a CM haf 912 also.

hello i don't know why but this is my third time i am trying to get some help, first 2 times my thread was deleted (i still don't know why)

Maybe this should be in the Systems->New Build section. That could be why if the thread keeps getting deleted.

I like the GTX 460. I got mine a few months ago for just $125 after rebate. I had a 5770 and wasn't impressed.
May 21, 2011 7:11:20 PM

no, you get a p67 or a z68 mobo.Dont go for h67..
