looks good, but it is pointless to go a series apus unless you plan to use the onchip gpu. rather go for an fx series cpu.

Also, the GT640 is rather slow. I'd ditch that wired network adapter and go with a better GPU, like an AMD Radeon HD7850.

Depends on the resolution you are playing at. 2GB is a good number.
