Default Rate This Build.

I haven't built a new rig in a while, so I'm muddling around some of the new slots and whatnot that's out there.

I already have a case and HDD's, but critique what parts I have listed here. If you think I can do better for cheaper price, throw in an idea.

This system is not really used for gaming, but if I find a kickass game I like I want a decent graphics card to play it. I kind of want the ability to be a decent gaming rig while being easy on the wallet.
