Gpu is a bit weak.. do you not need graphical power. its practically integrated quality.

Ram is very low freq, 1600 is around what you should use.

Maybe look at HX psu as Tx is non modular

other then that its good to go

Looks like a piece of crap. Get minimum 5850/Gtx-560 Ti video card. And get some DDR3-1600 ram not that slow 1333 garbage.

Sorry I just realised I didn't put this in original post I'm grabbing a 6950 and unlocking the shaders to 6970. Come Christmas. That GPU is only temperorary until then.

Not too bad a build as a good base to start from and things can be changed out easily enough later as funds or time permits.

Future enhancements could include Better GPU (you've already said you were doing that),
A modular PSU
Bigger harddrive
SSD for boot drive
Aftermarket cooling for overclocking
Quicker RAM


Was there any particular use you were planning to put it to or budget?

some good suggestions so far

minimum 560 ti is needed but as you said that card is just temp

the RAM again I agree 1600 is something you should aim for.

if your already above budget then no point in looking at SSDs.

So for the while change the RAM and then save up for GPU and SSD

I think really just a modular psu, and a larger hard drive. You've already talked about a future GPU upgrade so no debate there, except if it's over a 6950 or a 560 Ti. Really I don't think going for faster RAM will have any practical impact, but I have no evidence to substantiate that, just my view on it.

Choices were fine for what you need it to do and budget. The next thing I would do is get an aftermarket cooler and overclock your CPU.
