It's a reasonably good build, however if you are able to wait a little longer, may be that you could save a few bucks by choosing Trinity instead of the FX. The IGPU on Trinity is way better than the 6450 you intend to buy. Also, if possible, I'd change the case for this one:

And you could even save a few more cascades by choosing a good 550W PSU instead of a 650W one, maybe a little less, like this one:

living in the uk im doing most of my ordering via amazon and othe uk based companys. The power supply im going to stick with but the case is a diffent matter it gives me 2 fans instaed of 1 and more space for more cooling, plus it save me 5 pound. i will also keep my eye open on for the trinity. Thanks for your post.

do you think the system has any scope for over clocking with the system as it stands?
