The A8 3850 is a cpu with decent integrated graphics. You buy it because you plan to use it.

If you are a gamer, and want a strong discrete graphics configuration, priced >$75-$100, a8 is not the way to go.

Today, the sandy bridge cpu's are much stronger for gaming.
Yes, they also have integrated graphcs, but that will not be used for gaming.

Also, 2gb ram is not enough. 4gb at minimum, ram is cheap.

You might want to wait for Bulldozer to come out hopefully in a few weeks. If not, get the Phenom II X4 955 BE, a decent cooler and mobo and overclock it. I recommend a more powerful single GPU than CF. You can get 6970 for the price of 6850 CF.

Swap the CPU and board for Intel i series (the best one you can afford) and a P67 or Z68 board that supports the 2 GPUs at at least 8x/8x and swap the CM PSU with an Antec or Corsair. As mentioned the A series are only for if you want to use the onboard graphics (which gamers will not). Also as mentioned get 4gb+ RAM.

OK here we go... All from your site...

AMD PHENOM-2 QUAD-CORE 955 3.2GHZ AM3 = 385.00
MSI MS7641 880GMA-E35 AMD880G AM3+ MAINBOARD = 315.00
KINGSTON KHX1600C9D3K2 4GB-CL9 DDR3 RAM = 138.00
SAPPHIRE ATI HD6870 PCIE 1GB DDR5 256BIT = 679.00
WD CAVIAR GREEN 1TB 64M SATA-6 = 285.00
COOLER MASTER 550W EXTREME POWER PLUS PSU = 195.00

TOTAL = RM1997

Im assuming you already have a PC case as it was not included in your original build ?

What i would say is, if you can stretch your budget then also buy this...
COOLER MASTER HYPER 212 PLUS CPU COOLER = 105.00
For the extra its well worth it so you can OC your Phemom 955 to about 3.8-4.0ghz on one of these.
