Buy an FX processor instead , if you can . The 4100 is the cheapest but should hit FX 4170 speeds easily enough . If the phenom is very cheap then it is still a decent cpu

I would replace the 560 ti with a radeon 7850 which performs better , and uses less power for roughly the same price .

You need a good quality 500 watt power supply

budget? if you are going to pay $200 for the 560ti from newegg you could get a 660 or 7870 for the same price. not sure why 560ti's are still so expensive. my friend bought an asus 560ti for $230 18 months ago and the exact same model is still $230 on newegg. how ridiculous is that?
