Default Recomendations

Pretty soon im going to be buying parts for my new pc, and im kinda on a budget as i just spent most of my money on a 4wheeler Im looking to spend less then 400 dollars.

Case Rosewill r220: - Rosewill R220-P-BK Black 0.5mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

Mobo BIOSTAR TForce TF570SLI AM2: - Open Box: BIOSTAR TForce TF570SLI AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard

Gpu EVGA 7600gt: - EVGA 256-P2-N615-TX GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

Psu Hiper 480watt: - HIPER HPU-4M480-PS ATX12V v2.2 480W Power Supply 100 - 120V AC cUL,TUV,CB,CE,FCC - Retail

Cpu Athlon 64 X2 4000+ Brisbane: - AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ Brisbane 2.1GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor - Retail

Hdd western digital 80gb: - Recertified: Western Digital Caviar SE WD800JD 80GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

I already have 1gb (2 x 512) of this ram that i got for free - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
and i can come up with a monitor, OS, keyboard and mouse. Im going to be using this pc for basic purposes and playing counter strike source, maybe halo 2, FEAR, ect. I know the 7600gt isnt the best gpu but coming from a intel celeron d 330 and a PCI geforce mx4000 its a pretty big jump.
Any suggestions
