I'm ordering my gaming pc in the next week or so, and I wanted to get the thumbs up from you guys to make sure I don't make any choices in parts that I will regret :D  I'll be using this build primarily for gaming and other miscellaneous stuff such as Youtube, web surfing etc. One thing I will point out is I have no interest in overclocking or SLIing. Alright onto my build:

I have the Antec 300 Illusion case already. I will most likely not need an OS, can probably get that free from school. I appreciate any advice I receive!

what i would get. i changed the motherboard and the power supply

400w will be more than enough given you are not overclocking or crossfiring. either way you wont use half the given power. i also chose a higher overclocked video card since you dont plan on doing it in the future so why not get it as high as you can

Fair enough with the PSUs. Thank you.

Bigcyco, why should I choose that video card over the Sapphire one? Just curious. Also TheBigTroll, I mostly do not like overclocking CPUs, I have played with graphic cards before though.

EDIT: Also, looking at the PSU you recommended Bigcyco, I see another PSU for lower price, same 520w. Only difference that I see is it is modular. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Any reason to not grab this?

no reason not to grab the modular one it's more easy to work with for cable management but it's not cheaper than the one i recommended.As for the card the msi one has better cooling Free DirtShowdown coupon w/purchase, limited offer it's higher overclocked and it might actually be cheaper after mail in rebate it's also 5 star rated at newegg while the Sapphire is only 4 star rated other than that no reason ;)
