I believe it is finally time I upgrade my pentium 4 3.0ghz, 4 gig ram (3 usable, I know) 8600GT. I can still do pretty much everything I need with this pc which is watch movies, play wow, code html/css/php, an update would be nice.

This is the spec I have in mind right now


Processor_____INTEL CORE i3 2120 3.30Ghz (3MB CACHE)
Board________P8H61-MLE INTEL H61 (B3 REVISION) (LGA1155) SOUND - LAN -VGA - DDR3
GFX Card_____GT 440
Ram_________KINGSTON DDR3 4GB-1333 x2
HDD_________WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR BLACK 1000GB 3.5" HDD 64MB Cache (WD1002FAEX)
Speaker______CREATIVE SBS A520
Casing_______COOLER MASTER CHASSIS CM ELITE 431 WITH 420W POWER SUPPLY
Monitor_______DELL LED ST2420L 24" BLACK WIDE WIDESCREEN

Initially I was going for an i7 but then thought it would be a waste and decided on an i5, but then that too would be a waste as I would not be using the full potential of the machine. This is what I have settled for but since this is not what I do I have come here to ask the pro's :D 
Please tell me what changes I need to make in this config.

Thanks

Or, get a 6790. But the 6770 is still pretty good.

this psu is nice- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The 6770 is a really good budget card,if you want the 6790 then just for the 6850. The 6850 is only 10 dollars more and its way better.

here is a 6770 with 20 MIR- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
