you have change two things that is ram and graphics card.
RAM:leave kingston and pick out g.skill ripjaws x 4gb ddr3 1600mhz this will give much better performance than kingston.
GRAPHICS:if you want run heavy games on maxed out setting then go for gtx 570 other wise system is perfect.

Thanks :) 
Still deciding :)

g.Skill > Kingston, because of better price

a 570GTX is is around 300 bucks, might break the budget. I have a HD6870 ($170-200) runs most games at 1920x1080 fine, even BF3 (beta) with high settings
(30-70fps outside. 60fps+ indoors). However, I don't know any retailers that ship to your location.

by suggestion from your list: step up from the 550 (which is a weak, weak GPU) to a HD 6850, and trim back the 650W PSU to a 430-500W PSU

the antec Basiq 430 or EA 430 will handle a 6850 just fine, and the price difference will get you the 6850.

I'm buying from SuperBiiz,and there are no option of G.Skill or Corsair :/ 
I can decide on 6870,because my budget is still availible for that :) 

Best solution

good deal, enjoy your new rig!
October 13, 2011 3:41:34 PM

Thanks...but i'm still looking for a good GPU for the price of <200$
I was thinking of GTX550Ti till today...but now thinking between GTX550Ti and HD6850
Any other recommendations?
October 13, 2011 6:24:54 PM

Hmm...what about 6870?is it bad?
October 14, 2011 5:19:47 AM

nothing wrong with a 6870, 560 tends to be a few fps faster though
October 14, 2011 12:01:35 PM

Hmm...Ok...If i'll can get few more bucks,I'll go with 560...otherwise 6850
