Approximate Purchase Date: Within the next month or so

Budget Range: ~$600 after rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, watching videos, internet and office tasks

Parts Not Required: Anything outside the tower

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Amazon and NewEgg are nice, but if it's cheaper elsewhere, elsewhere wins as long as it's a reputable seller

Country: U.S.

Parts Preferences: MicroATX form factor is a big plus, though a very small ATX tower might be acceptable depending on how big it is

Overclocking: Probably not

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: Not sure at this time; most likely either 1680x1050 or 1920x1080

Additional Comments:

Am putting together a list of components to help a buddy build a new PC. He's got right around a $600 budget and mainly wants to be able to play Starcraft II as well as possible at the price point. I imagine that's the most demanding application he has for the PC at this time. Quietness and a compact footprint are nice. Preliminarily, I've selected these components and am wondering what changes you fellows would suggest?

Don't switch your PSU. It's a great PSU and it's modular what else can you ask for.
