You may want to rearrange parts for
1. a better video card
2. a better HDD (5400RPM is slow, 7200RPMs with good speed can be had for low price)
3. better RAM (generic 1333 CL9 memory will hold back overclocking of your Athlon II x4 630)
5. better PSU (that one is not very good, but there are some good choices for the price today)

My suggestion would be to balance this by spending less on the case, and by saving by buying the OS here

I'll get a better Video card
A 7200rpm hdd
the ram doesnt mater to me cause im not overclocking
And the psu what do you recommend

PSU depends on the GFX card you want. If you get GTX460/HD6850/HD6870, a corsair gs600 is enough. If you want a little more future proof video card, 560ti/hd6950, a corsair GS700 or TX750 if you might go SLI/Crossfire in the future.

PS: A 6790 may look like a cheaper alternative to 6850. A regular 6850 is 150$, the cheapest 6790 is 130$, but 20$ difference is worth getting a 6850.

What are you looking to spend Rockford? I'd say every $50 increase is a noticable performance increase.

I'm not kidding but I guarantee that nvidia GPU will be better optimized for games and intel i5 2300/2400 is good option. I can do a build for you tomorrow. Itouch sucks at multitasking.

No.
Hate to trample but I really can't recommend this setup.

Firstly, pairing that CPU with that low end MSI motherboard is a big no-no. Due to low end 3+1 design known for failures, MSI does not ratify this motherboard for 125W operation. One would be taking a huge step in the wrong direction, for the CPU is totally incompatible with that board!

There are a couple other things I would replace with parts that have better price performance.
My ideal PC at ~$400 goes something like this (I hope you don't mind split retailers):
Phenom II x4 925 OEM (no heatsink included) + ASUS HD 6770 - $200 shipped, $20 no wait rebate (no wait rebate = returns in 9 days after $2 deducted from check) [Newegg]
Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P AM3+ - $62 + $7 shipping, $10 no wait rebate [Superbiiz]
OCZ Flex II 2x2GB DDR3-1600 CL8 - $18 + $5 shipping [Directron] 8GB not worth it for gaming only
Coolermaster HAF 912 + 500W PSU - $65, $20 rebates (regular 8-10 week return)
Samsung F3 1TB - $58 shipped [Superbiiz]
Sony 24X DVD burner - $20 shipped
Rosewill 80MM cooler - $10 shipped [Newegg] (OEM CPU has no cooler)
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit - $85 shipped [see link - cheaper at this site, same part no. as Newegg]

COUPONS
Newcustomer10 [Newegg] - $10 off
DEALMONGO [Superbiiz] - $15 off

Total initial cost: $505 shipped
Total cost after 9 days: $479 shipped
Total cost after all rebates: $459 shipped

If you need to go lower yet, might as well take on an APU build:
AMD A8 3850 APU + Biostar TA75M+ - $215 shipped both
OCZ Flex II 2x2GB DDR3-1600 CL8 - $18 + $5 shipping [Directron] 8GB not worth it for gaming only
Coolermaster HAF 912 + 500W PSU - $65 shipped, $20 rebates (regular 8-10 week return)
Samsung F3 1TB - $58 shipped [Superbiiz]
Sony 24X DVD burner - $20 shipped
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit - $85 shipped [see link - cheaper at this site, same part no. as Newegg]
Newcustomer10 [Newegg] - $10 off
DEALMONGO [Superbiiz] - $15 off

Total cost: $441 shipped
Total cost after all rebates: $421 shipped

It will not perform as well as the 925 + 6770 build but it will definitely consume a lot less power.
