Default <$1000 Gaming PC

I have about $1000 to use to build a computer, although the less money I spend the better. It included Windows 7 Home Premium and must stay that way so thats $150 knocked off what I can use to purchase parts. Here is what I have. Better parts for better prices are a welcome addition. Thanks for your input. I didn't include the prices or links to anything because I am pretty sure most of you know where to shop, I used newegg and amazon for these. Final price comes to $1020 without shipping and tax.

CPU - AMD Phenom II X2 555 3.2GHz 6MB L3 Cache 80W Dual-Core BE
Motherboard - ASUS M4A89GTD PRO AM3 AMD 890GX
RAM - A-DATA Gaming Series 4GB DDR3
HDD - Western Digital Caviar Blue 640 GB
Optical Drive - LITE-ON Black 24X DVD+R
PSU - Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W
Video Card - XFX Radeon HD 5830
Sound Card - Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1
Cooling - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212
