It looks pretty good to me. But, you're psu was a little but overkill, and I would have went with trinity for cpu. But this will be a good build.

Looks alright. You didn't need 650W of power, but it would come in handy when it comes time to upgrade.

Thanks for the reply's, I have another question, two actually. My old hard drive is a SATA 3.0GB/s, can it be used as a secondary to my new hard drive? Also, my GPU says it can play blue-ray 3D, but does my optical drive also need to work with blue-ray? I'm hoping that's not the case.

I'm not sure about the Blu-Ray part, but I do know that you can add the hard drive if you want to.

Your optical drive will need to be a Blu Ray drive of some sort in order to play Blu Rays.

You made a good choice by getting the Llano CPU. The Zambezi series sucks.
