perhaps:
phenom II x2
sinpoint f3 500gb
HIS H467QR1GH Radeon HD 4670
nzxt gamma
mobo: asrock m3a770de
and any solid 350-400 watt psu the antec earth watts series is a good cheap one
any of these rams should be more that sufficient http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...odeId=1&name=7

Save a little money and get an Athlon II X2/X3 and get this XFX HD 4850 for $50 after MIR.

Other than that, everything looks good.

Buy the CPU/mobo, maybe HDD, from Microcenter; everything else from Newegg or elsewhere depending on deals.

$50 for 500GB HDD is too much; $40-45 is more appropriate. $50-60 should be getting you 1TB drives.
