Hey, i'm new to this site and I would love to get some feedback on a new build i'm ordering. And any advice on what I should change, or if I should leave it how it is. I'm going to be using this for everything leaning a little bit more towards the gaming side but it will be used for regular computing also.

The build is as follows:

Computer Case - Rosewill DESTROYER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 120mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan, 1x Top 120mm Fan, 1x Bottom Fan


Motherboard - Asus M4N68T-M V2 Motherboard - Socket AM3, Micro ATX, nForce 630a, GeForce 7025 Graphics, SATA, RAID



Power Supply - Thermaltake TR-500 TR2 ATX Power Supply - 500W, 120mm Fan, Active PFC



Processor - AMD Athlon II X3 460 ADX460WFGMBOX Processor - Triple Core, 1.5MB L2 Cache, 3.40 GHz, Socket AM3, 95W, Fan, Retail



RAM - Kingston KHX1333C9D3B1/4G Desktop Memory Module - 4GB, PC3-10600, DDR3-1333MHz, 240-pin DIMM, 9-9-9-27 CAS Latency, 1.5V, Non-ECC, Unbuffered


Graphics Card - MSI R5670-MD1GD3 Radeon HD 5670 Video Card - 1GB, DDR3, PCI-Express 2.1 (x16), 1x Dual-Link DVI, 1x HDMI, 1x VGA, DirectX 11, Single-Slot, CrossFire Ready

And I haven't found a good deal on a hard drive but that will be bought soon, if anyone has any recommendations for where to buy one cheap that would be nice.

I have a low budget sadly, of $400. And a few examples of games i'd be playing are Dead Space 1&2, The Witcher 1&2, Orcs Must Die!, etc.

So if anyone has any advice or recommendations for what I should buy or do with this build it would be much appreciated thank you!

Take a look at the $500 build in my sig. Pentium G850 is much faster than a X3 460.

You are out of luck with hard drives for the next year or so. There's an acute shortage of drives because of flooding in Thailand. Apparently, that is where most of the world's hard drives come from.
