$100 isn't a "little more money" when you are on a tight budget.

you honestly did pretty good.
i would HIGHLY suggest you get a 2GB 6950 instead. just my opinion.

I also second a Corsair PSU
This one totally, not a good idea to go amd for budget above $600 right now.

My suggestions:
i5-2500k
Gigabyte UD3 p67 mobo
everything else should be the same and compatible

This.

Maybe go for 8GB and future proof your computer for at least a year.

Otherwise your system looks really good! +REP for a first shot

and a mobo to go with it

I may attempt to overclock if I wasn't satisfied with the performance, although I have no experience.
I will most likely buy a new rig after 3 years, right now I'm on a low budget since I won't be working full time until next year (uni student atm)
Right now I'm running on 6GB of ram on my HP DV7 laptop, and according to the performance gadget, I hardly utilize it as I rarely run programs in the background.

This is a unrelated but: my laptop has a i7 720QM processor, and it is beginning to spike when playing SC2 on LOW settings (I used to play on medium lag free), should I attempt to get help from someone or is this normal? Whenever I alt tab to check the gadget the processor is always at 100% when gaming and the fans roaring.

You might want to change the Antec PSU for a reputable brand - something like Corsair or Seasonic. I personally have the Corsair AX750, but in general, any Corsair or Seasonic PSU is generally highly regarded here on OCN. Furthermore, you should seriously consider getting a bigger case than the 912. Its not a bad case, but it is just too small to be of any help when you do upgrades later on. I recommend at least the 922, if not the 932 or Haf X. Obviously these cost more, but trust me, you will not regret that one. Other than that, the rest of you system seems good.

Are you sure no background process are running? That sounds like something is using unecessary resources.

As for your rig I think you will be set for 3 years if you go with what you have, but up the vid card to at least a 6950 you will be much happier with 2GB DDR5 dedicated video memory.

The quad/hex core processor is up to you, realistically for what you are doing the Phenom II x4 955 BE will be plenty enough for you, plus they Overclock very easily and are perfect "learner CPU's" if you will.

As far as assembling the system, TAKE YOUR TIME. The worst thing you can do especially in a first build is rush. It is very easy to do, after you acomplish the first you will kick yourself for not doing it sooner

here are my suggestions
Phenom II x6 1090T
Samsung sinpoint f3 1tb hdd
Nzxt M59
XFX radeon 5670
g.skill 4gb ram
corsair 750 watt psu
asusm4a89td pro

$740 total
and $700 after mail in rebates
Why would you buy a hexcore with a 5670 as the GPU!? That's like buying a 2010 Mustang and putting a class 1 clutch in. >.< His current setup would do MUCH better in games as the 5670 isn't worth more than $40 new anyway...
