Default Final build. Suggestions?

Budget is about $500. I went with a crappier GPU to save money. Since all my parts will be coming from NCIX, I did not have as many options. However, I can price match A LOT.

CASE: Apevia X-PLORER 17IN ATX Tower Case 4X5.25 2X3.5 5X3.5INT 2X80MM Fan Window LCD TEMP. DISP. Black = $76.16

MEMORY: OCZ Platinum XTC REV.2 PC2-6400 2GB 2X1GB DDR2-800 CL4-4-4-15 240PIN DIMM Dual Channel Memory Kit = $49.55

VIDEO CARD: Palit Radeon HD 3870 512MB GDDR3 PCI-E DVI-I HDMI Video Card = $99.13

HARD DRIVE: Hitachi Deskstar P7K500 250GB SATA2 7200RPM 8MB 3.5IN Hard Drive OEM 3YR MFR Warranty = $65.86

PSU: OCZ StealthXStream OCZ500SXS 500W ATX12V 24PIN Active PFC ATX Power Supply 120MM Fan Black = $65.84

MOBO: Gigabyte EP45-DS3L ATX LGA775 P45 DDR2 PCI-E 2PCI SATA2 HD Sound GBLAN Motherboard = $122.87

DVD: LG GH22NS30 Black DVD+RW 22X8X16 DVD-RW 22X6X16 DL 16X/12X 2MB SATA OEM = $36.27

Total: $515.68 (after all MIR...lots of stamps needed)

You appear to be missing a processor..... That hdd seems a tad expensive and with that budget you should get a E7200 and a 4870 + a p45 board like listed and 4gb of ram with an antec 300 or 900 case and a 500W antec basiq powersupply
