i think you are seriously overestimating the value of SSDs, and underestimating the value of a good processor.

^+1, that CPU is very weak. Also, personally I wouldn't get a uATX board with a full ATX case, but there's nothing wrong with it exactly, I suppose.

If your going to buy a cheap processor you might as well spend a little extra and get the cheapest phenom 2 x4 as the added cores will benefit most applications
