Is it for gaming? This can be done much better. I'm assuming a $400 budget.

PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/kwCF
Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/kwCF/by_merchant/
Benchmarks: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/kwCF/benchmarks/

CPU: Intel Pentium G860 3.0GHz Dual-Core Processor ($74.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock H61M-DGS Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($51.97 @ Newegg)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($39.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7770 1GB Video Card ($126.97 @ Newegg)
Case: Rosewill CHALLENGER ATX Mid Tower Case ($38.25 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 500W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($39.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $372.16
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

This is a little more balanced. The GPU is better and the Pentium G860 is about the same speed in most applications.

plus you didn't even answer my question on what i asked i said look at the parts and tell me if they go together not give me a new list.

I picked the Intel-based build because I was able to fit a better graphics card into the budget. The G860 is able to keep pace with the aging Phenom II's. Your current build with the 965 and the 6570 is very imbalanced, as the processor is much stronger and the GPU you picked is very weak.

ok thanks for that info.i was thinking of getting the phenom so i could like be able to upgrade some other time

If you REALLY want an AMD build, I would say wait for the new "FX" line of processors to see what their performance and price is in gaming. Nothing AMD has right now is that great for gaming, save for the new Trinity chips, which are pretty good.

Your GPU is slow. I just picked the Intel CPU to allocate money to other parts.

im new to this pc gaming but i read online that amd builds are much cheaper so i too that idea.could you help me find a good amd build for me using the 6570 i think it can play most the games i wanna play thats why. thanks in advance if you do.

Ok here's the thing.

The Phenom II is quick, no doubt, but its also using a much older architecture than the Pentium I listed. The Pentium's 2 cores can do just about the same performance as the Phenom II's 4 cores.

And I'm going to say this again. The 6570 is very slow. Not the slowest there is, but very slow in terms of the gaming you want to do.

If you already have the 6570 and really want to use it, then go for it.

There are just better buys for your budget.

Here's a chart that shows graphics cards in a nice chart form. It sorts them by speed.

The 6570 is pretty low on the list. Whereas the 7770 I listed above is much quicker.

Also:

Here is the chart for CPU's. The G860 is only a step down. Personally I would take the step down to afford a better graphics card. A much better graphics card.

If you are only getting an HD 6570 (very weak) you may as well get an AMD Trinity with integrated hd 7660D.
What games do you want to play and at what resolution?

For your budget a A10 system would be the better option. Better CPU performance than the 965BE and better graphics than the 6570 for less money:
