Get an A8 or an A10 AMD APU and you won't need a dedicated GPU and you can save more money.

Good point. Added to list.

That motherboard is not compatible with an A10 processor. You need an FM2 motherboard (970 chipset motherboards like you have listed are AM3+).

Could easily done with a 300/400w PSU assuming no discrete card in the future. Not sure you where you are buying from, but could get a lower wattage PSU for cheaper.

Updated, anyone care to suggest what kind of RAM would suit this build best?

Tigerdirect.com and microcenter.com tend to have pretty good prices as well. If you have microcenter nearby, you should try picking up the processor and motherboard there as you can usually get a cheap enough mobo for free there.

Awesome, thanks a lot. Used most of the parts listed. I just don't like the case, when choosing my own are there any compatibility issues I have to watch for?
