If I were you, I'd save up a couple hundred more dollars. The difference in quality of parts is huge.

Yes, that is true. Thing is, I'd take a few months to save up around $100($100=P4200.) Money is a big thing here. :(

Great list, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... is a great case if you dont like the HAF. I personally think they're nasty and have no class. But they're great performers.

Thanks! Great budget build :D 
do you think Windows 7 Home basic 32bit would do for an OS? (around 80-95$ around here)

EDIT: The Phenom II X4 965 Black isnt available here. I could try to ship one but that costs more, considering my country is half way around the world from the US :D . The Athlon II X4 640 could be a good substitute? (processor closest to the Phenom X4 around here) Motherboard also isnt availabe. (I know, my area is crap when it comes to stocks. :(  ) Heres a link to another motherboard : http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=880GM-LE&ca...

GTX 560 is overkill for your resolution. You can save quite a lot by going with a 6770/5770, which are good up to 1680x1050.

Gonna look into it :)  if you can provide a link, that'd be great! :D  Thanks!

EDIT: Is the difference between a 6770/5770 great? 5770 is much cheaper than the GTX560 and 6770 here. :)
