AMD Athlon II X3 450 Rana-based 3.2 GHz CPU

Biostar A880G+ Socket AM3 Motherboard

G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 4 GB DDR3-1333 Kit (2 x 2 GB)

XFX Radeon HD 6770 1 GB

Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500 GB 7200 RPM Hard Drive

Rosewill Challenger ATX Mid-Tower

Corsair Builder CX500 500W 80 PLUS

Lite-On iHAS124 24x DVD±RW Drive

I have about $500 dollars and this build looks about right for me, Mostly for school, movies, and some gaming.

I will also need some help building it because I'm a newbie, any sources for help?

Edit: Forgot to ask question, is this PC a good entry level PC for a college student?

No, but I might just load on Windows 8 preview until I get enough money for a copy of Windows 7.
