Looks like a good super budget build. For the price I doubt there is much I would change.

Spend that tad bit more and get a 3700 rather than a 3500. The price difference really is minimal. But yea that rig looks good. Also if its a gaming rig, try to get 2gb of RAM rather than 1.

I agree that you should try and get a 3700 if you have the means over a 3500 but I don't think it's worth the extra cost to get 2 gigs of ram over 1 gig in a single core system. But do try to get Dual Channel 2x512mb as that will give a nice little performance boot with not much extra cost.

He's a gamer though. 2GB of RAM really does make that much of a difference in gaming, but i agree that if he cant afford it then he shouldnt get it. But it really does make a difference in high textured games.

I really suggest getting a 3700+ Sandy, it OC's very high and has a 1Mb L2 cache. Are you gonna OC this or leave it stock? You should probably replace the stock AMD HS, you can get an awesome Arctic Cooling Pro 64 for real cheap.

Stick with a 7900gs instead of a 7600gt.
They run same price after mail in rebate, and you will see a big boost in performance!

If you're staying stock you don't need really good OC'ing ram, I'd still get the 3700+, AC 64 Pro, and a 7900gs though. Your mobo is an OC'ing mobo, you might want to look at the ASUS A8N32- Deluxe or SLI mobo if you aren't OC'ing. I've heard it's more stable at stock speeds.
