This is my first time building a gaming PC. I'm trying to keep the budget really low, so around $550.

Here's what I came up with:

i3 3220
XFX 7850 2GB
ASRock Z75 Pro3
Corsair Vengeance 8GB
WD 500GB
Samsung DVD Burner
Corsair CX430
NZXT Source 210 Case

Any suggestions? Anything that I could add or change that would make the build significantly better? Compatibility issues?
I'm going to be playing this on my 50" HDTV. I think games are gonna look great at 1080p on that kind of display (certainly better than my Xbox).
Also, will the PC boot correctly on the HDTV? Can I just plug an HDMI cable into the 7850 and the back of the TV? I don't know if TVs and monitors work the same way like that.
Any reply is much appreciated.

Got same memory, cpu,motherboard and getting same gpu too next week. Yes it will work if u plug hdmi to 7850, however if u wanna use VirtuMVP(gives nice fps boost in games) then u have to put hdmi into your motherboard hdmi port.
