  1. You forgot the PSU.
  2. People tend to foget the psu not thinking that it's what powers everything and you need it for the Pc to run.,3106-5.html,3107-7.html

    Here are a couple of charts to help you choose a cpu and video card according to how good you want the computer to be. I'm not sure what games you will be able to play with a G-630 cpu , I think you should look up the minimum spec's of some of the games that you want to play and with the help of the cpu chart see where that cpu falls in whether or not it will play the game.
  3. The CPU is by far the best I've seen around the price.

    I did a really low budget build for a friend who has an old IBM TFT with the max resolution of 1024x768. The following were included:

    -Intel SB G620 2.6 Ghz DualCore
    -VTX3D HD 7750 1gb GDDR5
    -2x2 Gb DDR3 1333 Kingmax
    -Gigabyte H61M Mobo

    +He had an old 350w PSU, still perfect for the components.

    So far he could max out Crysis (ON 1024X768) with 40 fps avg, DX10,4XAA,Very High sets. He could also max out Crysis 2, (DX9,Extreme Sets) All Stalker games, Alien VS Predator....

    The point is, if you have a max res. of 1400x900, you should be just ok with those.
    I'm not really near the US to know about dollars, but not long ago I've found an offer under 600$ with double the performance. (i3 2120+ HD 6850)

    This might help you ;)
