Budget gaming pc question

Hello,I'm building a $600 budget gaming PC.
I'm wondering if all my decisions seem correct.
CPU: i3-2100
MOTHER: ASRock H61M/U3S3
RAM: G.Skill rip jaws 8GB (2x4GB)
STORAGE: Seagate barracuda 1TB
GRAPHICS: MSI gtx660 ti 1GB
CASE: Cooler master elite 371 mid tower
POWER: Corsair 500W ATX12v
OPTICAL DRIVE: iHAS124-04

Any suggestions would be great.

  1. Thx for the power supply sugg and i accidently put gtx660ti but i meant gtx650ti.
  2. You just answered my question. Thought, on initially seeing your list, that probably wouldn't be much more to use Ivybridge i3, and H77 mobo, for better performance. Used everything else, apart from RAM, the same, and came out to over $700. I was then wondering how your build was $600. I now see. Will do it again.
  3. Something like this would be much better.
