This motherboard costs 74$, it's AM3+ so Bulldozer ready, it has all solid capacitors which you won't find at similar priced motherboards, USB 3.0 and Core Unlocker! The last one will help you turn your 3-Core CPU into a Quad Core! The only bad thing about this, is the SATA 3 support. But you wont see any perfomance difference with HDDs so it's pretty acceptable!

A 3 core CPU is the less that you have to buy this days..The next one comes @ 3.2GHz which helps at gaming!

Get 4GB of high speed RAM, as Bulldozers will need it.

Don't get a green drive they have problems. That's the best you can get around this price as Caviar Blacks are too expensive.

Get a 6670. It's the least you can get for a gaming PC for me! XFX offers lifetime warranty with registration

You should make an investment for PSU. Get a good one because you don't need anything that will blow up plus you can keep it for your next system!
550W are overkill for this system but, as we said, we are making an investment here!

XFX Core Edition PRO550W (P1-550S-XXB9) 550W ATX12V 2.2 & ESP12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Case is important too, as you need everything to run nice a cool. The next one is great for it's price!

This is a better configuration that can go pretty good, on low resolution gaming! Plus it's highly upgradeable! So when you get some $$, you can change CPU to a Quad Core Bulldozer, let's say +adding another 4gb of RAM and a better GPU and play anything!

Get a motherboard with a 970 series chip set . Then you can update it in a years time with a newer Bulldozer 8 core processor . These are available on newegg for under $100

The caviar green is a great HTPC hard drive , but is quite slow compared to a blue , black or samsung f3 .

The psu looks too cheap to actually be making 700 watts . Instead get a quality psu like the 380 watt antec green which is a similar price and wont blow up while still giving plenty of power for your set up .

I'd also consider an X3 Athlon processor . The clock speed is a bit lower but having the extra core more than makes up for it in general performance

Of course it will work! PSU is high in price because it's the best out there. Case isn't that costy...it's a cheap one!

GPU is excellent for your budget and no there won't be any bottlenecks...Everything depends on your monitor resolution...If it's a low one you won't have any problems...Of course don't expect crazy things..It's a pretty sweet gaming machine and for that money it's the best you can get...
