Additional Comments: i have what i think is an ok build. but id like to cut back the cost a little bit if possible. even if its a 5$ difference. i want to try and future prof it for a least a couple years with some small upgrades. also im willing to wait a if theres better deals in the future. especially HDD this so damn expensive now!
You don't need 600w i recomand you this power supply ENERMAX NAXN 82+ ENP550AWT B 550W ATX12V 80 PLUS BRONZE : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and yes is another 5$ diference.
And if you don't wan't to overclock i recomend you this CPU , Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
This is the same like i5 2500 the difernece between then is 300Ghz frequency taht could do yourself raising the multiplier in 10 seconds and you go cheaper with another 20$. Per total you go cheaper with 25$. And you don;t loose performance .
i took a lot of your advice. i switched the power supply and the ram. the video card is actually 219 on new egg so my price dropped even more. i kept the mother board i picked out because i need an optical out for my 5.1 head phones. i forgot to mention that in the original post. i live in barracks so i cant really have speakers if i want to stay up late and game.
