That's a whole lot to look at, a bit tough to read through. The Phenom II x4 955 is a good processor, and the 6850 is a good graphics card. I don't think that board is a good choice for overclocking.

Safe to assume you're having this built for you? It would be cheaper to build it yourself, and you could get better parts for the money.

edit: Working on putting together an example of something that would get you more bang for your buck.

ASUS M4A88TD-V-EVO - 109.99 after $10 MIR.

DVD Drive - $20

Phenom II x4 955 BE - 139.99

NZXT Apollo Case - $89.99; you could get a cheaper one if you didn't care about the side window.

1TB HDD - 89.99

Windows 7 Home Premium - $99.99

G.Skill Ripjaw 2x2GB DDR3 1600 RAM $49.99

Sapphire Radeon 6850 + Antec 750 watt PSU Combo - $239.99

It would end up being around $840, better system to expand on in the future. You don't need anything but the stock cooler if you aren't going to be overclocking. It does a great job.

I hadn't either until I built the one in my signature, which was about a month or so ago.

Shopping for the parts is a lot of fun, because you learn a bunch of stuff along the way. The actual building is really, really easy. Everything comes with instructions, but it's pretty much just putting stuff into the spot labeled for it.

I'd look around the AMD General forum, I've seen some great gaming builds for under $600 in there. The build you posted in the OP definitely seems not so great to me.

edit: Also, there's a fellow on here who goes by the name xd_1771 who has come up with a lot of good budget builds, he might pop in here, or you could look for some of his posts in the forums.
