looks good
bit of overkill on the ram, maybe you can downgrate that and get a better graphics card

For your use that'll work. At least you stayed away from the FX's - good move on your part. If you were shooting for a higher purpose, I'd try to steer you to the i5. In your case it's not needed. $70.00 saved is big in todays economy.

switch to xfx pro 550w psu.it's a better choice.
get x4 955 deneb.6 core isn't worth the cost and also add a hyper 212+ if you are planning to overclock.

Will Downgrading the RAM give me better performance? I was under the impression that more RAM is better..Sorry a bit new to building

more ram is better but you will see no improvement over 8 gigs

As the old saying goes 8 is enough. :)

Yes I agree. We may be about to enter a cycle where "green" does to "red" what Intel did.
