added windows 7
added a hard drive

con;
increased cost
raw gaming performance dropped significantly from previous post, will still be a big step up from your current.
limited upgrades path without also upgrading your power supply again.
Cons:
Corsair builder series is not of the same cailber as Corsair's other PSU lines
Dual core < quad core

All in all still a good build. I dropped the graphics card as the onboard 4250 will easily run what is being used already. A 4200 onboard is roughly equal to a GeForce 7600GT and the 4250 is just an updated version of it.

The motherboard comes with three SATA cables and the PSU has four SATA connections so you should be good to go for cables.
