    If gaming is your primary objective, I would suggest the Phenom II 965 quad core over the 1045T. I'd also consider finding a way to work a 6870 video card into the budget. Take it from someone who owns a 550 TI, its not a bad card, but there are better ones out there in the same price neighborhood. If need be, even an older GTX 460 is a stronger performer than 550 TIs, and they're around the same price.

    I agree with looniam, CoolerMaster is not well known for quality power supplies.
