Default help me build a computer

hello, i am trying to build a computer off of newegg but i have no knowledge of what parts are good or not. i was wondering if anyone can build me a gaming computer for less than $600. i prefer a desktop than a micro computer because i will like to keep upgrading my computer.

Do you need a monitor? Keyboard and mouse?

CPU + MB: $207 AMD FX-4100 + Asus M4A87TD/USB3
HDD + ODD: $100 500GB Hitachi + Sony Optiarc 24x DVD/CD Burner
RAM: $30 4GB G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600/CAS9
PSU: $60 Corsair CX500 V2
GPU: $84 XFX HD 6670
OS: $100 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit OEM
Case: $50 Sentey Black Box 4284 v2.1

Total = $631 (-$50 in rebates = $581)

Not sure how long that HDD + ODD deal is going to last.
Depending on what games you play the 6670 may be a little weak.
<$600 is a tight budget, someone else may be able to optimize it a bit better.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
