Approximate Purchase Date: This week
Budget Range: 400-500$
System Usage from Most to Least Important: mid-core gaming ( i dont expect to run all the games at 1080p with max settings )
Parts Not Required: mouse,keyboard,monitor,speakers,os,case,dvd writer.
Country: Estonia
Parts Preferences: AMD

If you can buy from newegg.com, they have shellshocker combo specials at least twice a week with parts similar to the ones you chose, often at a 20-23% discount. Only weak spot is the power supply, except for some rosewills, which work fine with low end video cards. But the parts you've selected aren't bad.
