Proposed build, check it out

Taking suggestions on the PSU especially. Got OEM Phenom II x2 since it's so cheap can grab the after market as a free replacement to stock BS. Not sure what resolution will be gaming at, but I believe the gtx 460 should be able to handle most anything they game at even if its at 1080p.

Cheers to a good build

Get the Hyper 212+ at buy.com, with $8 shipping on Newegg I find it is not worth it on Newegg at all (I can get the Hyper 212+ regularly for $20 here in Canada).

x2 non-unlocked + GTX 460 should be fine on that PSU and mobo. Unlock the x2 and you may have complications due to both that PSU and mobo.

CX430 isn't a bad PSU, but it really isn't great either. It has much less voltage on the 12V rail, is only rated for efficiency at 30C ambient, isn't 80+ rated, and uses a sleeve bearing fan (a quiet one, but with the upward mounting on most power supplies the sleeve bearing won't be that effective at all; other power supplies use ball bearing)

A much better case for the same price would be the NZXT M59. For $10 less, the HEC/Compucase Blitz is also a great choice.

I should've recommended the HyperX Blu. They're actually a great kit with nice overclockability. I'm not too sure if the 15% off code is valid anymore (it was 72 hours only)

That one guy on here who is really good with power supplies suggested the NEO 400w over the Antec earthwatts 500w saying it should handle the system well. I don't think I mentioned plans to unlock the x2 tho :x
