I want to make sure these parts will all work together, none of them are known to be horrible quality, and I'll be able to play Starcraft II. If you have any ideas for saving money or things I could switch or cut back on, that would be great too.
Cant see the point in a "green" hard drive for gaming . They use a couple of watts less power but trade off too much performance . And take half as long again to load and boot .
Do not use a gtx 260 . Too old , too slow .
At this price range the Phenom quad is the processor of choice BUT make sure you use a motherboard that supports AM3+ processors . This is going to open up the possibility of future upgrades to AMD's next generation Bulldozer processors .
