It's been a long time since I last built my own pc. I need something cost-effective (~$500) that will last a few years and handle casual gaming with decent graphics. Here's what I'm looking at. Would love some feedback! Thanks!

AMD FX-4100 ::

MSI 970A-G46 mobo ::

Ultra LSP650 PS ::

Radeon HD 6570 (2gb) ::

2x4GB PC3-12800 ::
