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. :ange:  :ange: 

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! :D  :D

For your type of low end build, I would wait for a newegg shellshocker combo deal if you can. They have at least one a week, and typically discount by 20%. Most are around $300, and some include everything but the operating system. You can still order the video card separately.
