Hey I was thinking about building this new PC, and I just wanted your feedback to see if everything is compatible and what not. My budget is $800 not including mouse, keyboard or monitor. From most to least this is what I want my computer to do, Gaming>Movies>Internet browsing. This is just what I thought up but feel free to comment whole new ideas! Oh and I'm up in canada so the websites I've been using are (newegg.ca and tigerdirect.ca)

So that's what I've been looking at for now but I don't know if this is bad or not. Thanks in advance for your feedback!
Alright thanks guys! I think I'll get the better GPU and choose a different PSU. I wasn't planning to do any overlooking.. So is there really a huge diffrence going the AMD way than intel? I think I'll go with the FX-417. What do you guys think about this?
