No aftermarket CPU cooler would be necessary, as the stock one would work just fine for a non-overclockable i5-3470 (which would still greatly outperform an OC'd FX-4350 anyhow).

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor ($184.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($63.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: Crucial Ballistix 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($55.25 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($58.99 @ NCIX US)
Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB Video Card ($159.98 @ Newegg)
Case: NZXT Source 210 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($39.03 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: Rosewill Capstone 450W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($59.99 @ Amazon)
Optical Drive: LG GH24NS95 DVD/CD Writer ($17.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $640.21

This seems really good. I'll keep this one in mind after I'm done tweaking the current built.

6350 is $10 more
get it
much better CPU. They overclock to 4.8ghz pretty easy if thats your thing. Plus it competes more with the i5, I would say it would probably do better/equal on most newer games vs that i5 svenge pointed out, and thats at stock. FX 6350 will win outright in the OC game, as you can't overclock a non K i5. Other then that the build is looking fine. Tiger isn't always the best place to get the best prices anymore, and their selection isn't what it once was.

You use the link function and name the components by brand and model, that would be less of a pain than clicking on the links each time to know what's going on, you could do it just like this :

Disk Drive :

LG - 24X DVD Burner (GH24NS95B) - 15.99 $
And then the total at the end, you would be able to see more clearly through your post and build and that would help us help you as well wink.gif

Now let's get to business, build revision :

Build revision (with different options depending on your budget as time evolves, the prices include rebates and I used Tigerdirect as you seemed to be planning on buying only there) :

CPU :
AMD - FX-6350 - 139.94 $

GPUC :
Corsair - H60 - 49.97

MOBO :
1) Gigabyte - GA-970A-DS3 - 69.97 $
1) MSI - 970A-G46 - 79.97 $
3) Asus - M5A9 - 79.97 $

GPU :
MSI - HD 7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC - 224.99 $

PSU :
1) Ultra - LSP450 - 45.99 $
2) Cougar - RSB400 - 47.96
3) XFX - Core Edition 450W - 65.99 $ (Best quality between the three)

HDD :
Seagate - 500GB 7200 - 44.97 $

DD :
LG - 24X DVD Burner (GH24NS95B) - 15.99 $

Total : 621.82 $ (using the highest prices)

CASE :

Up to him, he has 80$ for that, the last three are a bit on top but you can find them on sale often and as low as 65$ (eg the R2 recently on NCIX, or the R4 at 79.99, etc.), you could use pricebat, shopbot or pcpartpicker to check cases and prices depending on the store, another thing that's important concerning the case is the price of the shipping as it can be as high as 30$ which is quite an important sum considering your budget :

1) NZXT - Source 210 - 49.99
2) NZXT - Tempest 410 - 69.99
3) Thermaltake - Urban S21 - 69.99
4) Corsair - 200R - 69.99
5) FD - Core 3000 - 84.99
6) FD - Define R4 - 109.99
7) FD - Arc Midi R2 - 114.99
