Critique my upcoming build?

This is going to be my first time building a pc, and so far all that I want out of it is the basic tasks as well as the ability to run emulators and games that don't require more than these specs...suggestions are more than welcome.


AMD Athlon II X3 450 Rana 3.2GH

  3. and the processor is more or less suppose to be an AMD Athlon II X3 450 Rana 3.2GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor
  4. use an AM3+ motherboard instead so you can upgrade the processor later on .

    Asus AM3+ motherboards are M5xxx . There is an equivalent of the unit you have listed and the price is similar
