I'm building a friend a cheap pc, and just want some final thoughts and confirmation that this will be a good build . It started out as a real tight budget build ($340). He decided to spend a little more so here's what I came up with.

AMD Phenom II 965 - $99 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Antec 300 - $55 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Seagate 500GB - $60 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Corsair CX500 - $60 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

G Skill 8 Gb - $45 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Gigabyte AM3+ ATX - $90 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Rosewill Wifi Adapter - $35 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Samsung Dvd Drive - $16 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Total - $460

The GPU will be my Sapphire 6950 1GB.

Any thing you can find that I missed will be helpful, thanks! :)

Btw, It's not a pure gaming build , hopefully just a solid, reliable build.
