Default Building gaming PC for 700€

Hey folks,
I chose the following parts for my new computer, which should not be high end but capable of most games at 1680*1050.

Parts:

Motherboard:
MSI P45 Neo3-FR -93€

CPU:
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 (E0), 2x 3.00GHz, 333MHz FSB, 6MB shared Cache, boxed -157€

GPU:
Sapphire Radeon HD 4870, 512MB GDDR5, 2x DVI, TV-out -210€

RAM:
OCZ SLI-Ready Edition DIMM Kit 2GB PC2-8500U CL5-5-5-15 (DDR2-1066) -33€
(not sure about that pick)

HDD:
Samsung SpinPoint F1 320GB -52€

Case:
Antec Sonata III, 500W ATX 2.2 -100€

Total:
655€

I now still need a good DVD Drive.

Really appreciate your thoughts about the setup.

-Michael

To the OP you may want an Aftermarket cpu cooler such as the Antec freezer 7 pro or thermal take ultra 120 or Core contact freezer.

N.b you also need an OS and a case just incase you have forgotten
