Default Advice on this Barebone kit

Looking at getting this ( 404 Error - Page Not Found ) Along with a EVGA 460m Graphics card and a PSU. Is there anything else I would need? This is my first Barebone and I'm planning to play COD Black Ops.

that kit has some old/crappy parts. you could get these parts for about $3 more (excluding shipping).

cpu/mobo - AMD Athlon II X3 450 Rana 3.2GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor ADX450WFGMBOX
+ - BIOSTAR A880G+ AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

ram - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ

hdd - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST31000528AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

case - Xigmatek ASGARD II B/B CPC-T45UC-U01 Black / Black 0.8 mm SECC / Aluminum and Aluminum Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

optical drive - SAMSUNG Black 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA DVD Burner LightScribe Support - CD / DVD Burners

you would get a newer am3 mobo with ddr3 ram instead. the cpu may have 1 core less, but it is a newer gen; it will perform about the same or better than the older quad that was in that bundle, but it will also run cooler, consume less power and OC better. you might even be able to unlock it to a full phenom ii quad.

also, i listed a 1tb hdd because the bundle you found did, but if you don't need that much space you could save a couple bucks with a smaller hdd. - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

what psu do you plan on going with? or is it one you already have?
