Hey everyone!

So I put this together quite hastily so I hope it's decent. I'm looking to keep it cheap yet pretty powerful... if there are any corners you think I could cut or optimize any parts please let me know.

I am thinking of ditching the SSD or at least lowering the size.

Here it is:

Case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
MOBO - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
SSD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
HDD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
GPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thanks in advanced!

I'd like to keep it under $600

But not only do I plan on buying it, this is also the first time I am putting one together and would like some feedback on how I did... kind of like a self-test!

:p 

But yea, I do plan on purchasing it as well.

Mobo: not the best
PSU: terrible

HDD: good enough!
GPU: certainly not the best
CPU: its an FX CPU... what can i say? it sucks.

lol, i doubt someone can come-up with something better than that at this price-range. i could do some extreme cost cuts to fit a 7950/GTX660ti in there but its not worth it.
