Maybe a 460 in place of 550ti, and HDD to a Samsung f3

I dont like the PSU really, or the ram too much.

I would swap out that caviar blue for a faster 500gb caviar black for $2 more
or a 500gb spinpoint f3 if you can find them

also go with a more powerfull video card like this gtx 460
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814500202

this only adds $25 to the build and will improve performance alot

also you can get a Phenom 840 for $85 after the coupon code and that will perform better than the x3 athlon
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103993

All together only $35 more and well worth the upgrade imo

if you wanted you can get a better motherboard with a newer 880g chipset for the same price
