600W is too much, you will never be able to afford CPU+GPU strong enough to use that much, stay in the 300-400 range as this system won't pull more than 300W.

Seasonic is one of the best PSU makers out there and actually OEMs certain Corsair PSUs. I don't see a reason to not buy Seasonic. But just in case:

Here is the list of Newegg PSU in the 300-399 range.

Heavens, no! Most of the PSUs on that list are junk.

Honestly, the PSU of choice for such a budget-constrained build is the Corsair CX430. It's the least-expensive PSU that will power a basic system like you're envisioning without running the risk of the power supply overloading, killing your system's components, and/or catching fire.

I have an idea for a total system build, but it'll take a bit to compile. Thought it best to save you on the power supply recommendation ASAP though.

Thanks guy , i will wait for your build svenge let me know when you get it up =]. Also i'm having a hard time finding the best case under 70$ but i think i found most of the other parts. I would prefer a nvidia , but so far everyone is referring ATI , also burning chicken why did you pick that mb over the one i picked and you invested more inthe gpu?

As promised, here's my proposed build from Newegg. Prices include shipping and are after rebates. It's not quite a min-max build, but has more of an eye on build quality. As for including "only" a 2x2GB kit of RAM, the motherboard has 4 slots so you could always buy more sticks later.

CPU: Intel Core i3-3220 $130
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H $73
RAM: Corsair CML4GX3M2A1600C9B (2x2GB DDR3-1600) $35
GPU: EVGA GTX 650 Ti 1GB (01G-P4-3652-KR} $130 AR ($150 up-front)
HDD: WD Blue WD10EZEX (1TB 7200RPM} $75
DVD: LG GH24NS95 $18
PSU: Corsair CX430 $20 AR ($40 up-front)
CASE: Corsair Carbide Series 300R $60 AR ($70 up-front)

Total: $541 AR ($591 up-front)

This build intentionally utilizes the stock HSF included with the CPU. Temperatures won't be an issue since you can't overclock an i3, and paying money for an aftermarket HSF on such a budget-constrained build is just wasteful.

Also be advised that NVIDIA's new "GTX 650 Ti Boost" card should be announced early this coming week. It's supposed to be a gap-filler between the existing 650 Ti and the 660 and priced at about $180. The differences between the aforementioned models (and their stock speeds) are as seen in this chart:
Code:
                 CUDA TMU ROP SMX BASE BOOST  MEM BUS

GTX 650 Ti        768  64  16   4  928   N/A 5400 128
GTX 650 Ti Boost  768  64  16   4  980  1032 6008 192
GTX 660           960  80  24   5  980  1032 6008 192

Basically it's the processing front-end of the original GTX 650 Ti married to the back-end memory bus bandwidth and clock speeds of the GTX 660.

What about replacing mb for http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157296 if he decide to overclock if not i will choose one of those. How does the i3-3220 compare to the i5200k ?

Have to get a K series CPU to OC. I3 can't overclock

Upping the price on MoBo & CPU
