Already have a dvdrw driver and windows 7 ultimate 64bit.

Was wondering if you guys/girls saw any issues with my build or possible things to lower price.

Case/PSU Combo- http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... $105

CPU/HDD Combo- http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... $182

Mobo- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $78

RAM- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $47

GPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $120

Overall Price: $532

Will be buying 1 Items with each paycheck (1 per week) until I have it all.

Do you live by a microcenter?
Is this a gaming build? Anyway, at that price, it's pretty unbalanced. You've got a much worse GPU, and the CPU is pointless at that point. I'd go with:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i3-2120 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor ($122.66 @ NCIX US)
Motherboard: Intel DH67CLB3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($89.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($39.99 @ Newegg)
Hard Drive: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($79.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Asus Radeon HD 6850 1GB Video Card ($137.55 @ Newegg)
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case ($52.99 @ SuperBiiz)

Total: $558.15

The rest of your build? Well, the HAF 912, in my opinion, is a better case. However, your case/PSU combo LOOKS pretty decent. I'm always wary of PSU manufacturers other than Corsair, Seasonic, and, indirectly, PC Power and Cooling. The PSU is a very important part of your build... that is the one component you do NOT want to fail. Rosewill does not have a great reputation at the moment. It's your risk... however, that combo is rather nice. Keep in mind that the case is full ATX... so some cables may not reach, and the case is MASSIVE (measure out the dimensions it would take up in your home--you'll see ;)  ). The case I suggested is mid-ATX, which has pros and cons (a bit tighter and harder to build in, but everything should reach and it's not HUGE).

Feel free to go with your motherboard. Just as good.

Your CPU/HDD combo is nice as well (may want to switch the original post to CPU/HDD... it says PSU/HDD).

You don't need the RAM you're getting. DDR3-1600 isn't all that much faster than 1333, and the money you save can be spent on a better GPU. The performance difference should be very small.

I'd do everything possible to get at least that 6850. You won't be disappointed with it! Have fun! Oh, and sorry I didn't look into your links as much as I should have. I usually just recommend an entire build... yours wasn't much different, so I just posted the entire thing!

XFX is another brand to always consider.

I was also looking at 7770's. Would that be a good idea?

Meh...

Also, XFX is a nice company, but some of the GPUs they make can be REALLY LOUD. Make sure you check some CUSTOMER REVIEWS (yes, actual customer reviews for noise levels) to find out if the one you're considering is loud or not. Not all XFX GPUs are loud, but some of them can be very loud (I believe one of their 6870s is rather loud)

I am talking about XFX PSUs, not GPUs.
