How's this build for a budget gaming pc?

CPU: AMD A6-5400K 3.6Ghz w/ HD7540D APU
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-F2A75M-D3H Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 4GB DDR3 1600 CL9 Memory
Graphics Card: Sapphire Radeon HD6670 1GB GDDR5 128-bit Video Card
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB SATA 6Gb/s 7200RPM Hard Drive
SSD: OCZ Agility 3 60GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Solid State Drive
Optical Drive: LiteOn IHAS124 24x Multi-Format DVD Drive
Power Supply: Aerocool StrikeX 500W 80Plus Bronze Certified Power Supply
Chassis: Antec One Mid Tower Casing
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM

I'll be using the SSD as boot drive, and plan on upgrading later the memory with 8gb dual channel and the cpu with the a8-5400k.
What else can I get in the future?

cheers! :D

You could add another 6670 for XFIRE if you don't get an APU. (i do not suggest getting an apu if you're gonna buy a 6670. grab like a 4100fx, and 1 6670) or upgrade gfx card entirely. I.E. buy like a 7870 or a 7770. once again, if you're gonna buy an apu, don't buy a dedicated gpu. get like the cheapest non apu that'll fit in your build.
:)  just my advice, helped my friend build a similar system for his mom

EDIT: BTW what's your full budget? I'll put you something together. do you need a hard drive and a cd rom? if you have an old comp you can recycle those.

another edit: radeon 7770 is almost the same price as a 6770. much better performance. i kinda guessed on budget and am putting something together atm.

If You are in a very Low Budget, You can Go With AMD A10-5800K.
It is an APU . You can get both CPU and GPU Performance.
