Default I need a 600$ PC Build =/!

I need a new gaming PC but im on a budget of 600$, It can go over to 650$, That's fine.

I don't need a monitor or graphics card (I have those 2 things already)

I was looking for the best gaming PC build for the price, But I fail at this stuff, I thought I might get some help here

Yeah, I need to buy an OS, my choice for that is windows vista 64 bit (Comes with free windows 7 upgrade from newegg)

My video card is a geforce 9500GT

I asked another forum to suggest a build on this budget and, Heres what I currently have :

i32 [dot] tinypic [dot] com/2w397yf.jpg

I like that build ^ It's what I'm getting, Unless you can make a better one? !

The mobos only come with 1 SATA cable, Which is for the HDD, I'd need an extra one for the CD/DVD Drive which is OEM, That's why o.o

You can always use some of your old cables.

Ahh, Thanks for your help.

I've never used AMD so I don't know much about that, I stuck with the previous build (I removed all the cables)

Also, I changed the PSU to another one that was suggested by someone at another forum.

Instead of the Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33 GHz, I purchased the Intel Core 2 Quad 8400 2.66Ghz for 20$ more in hopes of more speed.
