So I'm building a new computer, but I'm under a budget so it cant be something completely state of the art. I already have a case (fits Micro ATX motherboards) to put the parts in, A CD drive, and HD I'm going to use. My budget is $400 and I'm trying to put together the best, but budget items together to build a decent gaming computer. I'm going to list the parts i have found, and then anyone willing to help can suggest what they think would be better of a trade off compared to what i already found. The parts I need are a Motherboard (Micro ATX size), CPU, Graphics Card (preferably Geforce not ATI), RAM, and Power Supply.

Here's the parts I have found:

Motherboard: Foxconn A88GMX AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Graphic Card: EVGA 01G-P3-1464-KR GeForce GTX 560 SE (Fermi) 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

RAM:G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory

Power Supply: APEVIA ATX-CB700W 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply - OEM

Those are the parts i have found totaling just under 400 with shipping, if anyone has any better suggestions that could cost around the same or less, but make for a better gaming computer that would be great. Also my resolution is 1920x1080, and I'm planning to not SLI any graphic cards

The power supply is way to big you can prob get a 500 550 watt version and buy from a better brand such as corsair
