Default 400 budget gaming PC build suggestions

Hey guys,

I'm looking to build a 400 gaming PC that will play Cod6 to a decent standard. I don't need:

An OS, keyboard, mouse, monitor or a PSU. Well I say I don't need a PSU because I've got this one:

"Antec TruePower Trio 550W PSU - With 3x 12v Rails and 120mm Fan "

Not sure how that will work with a new system though and if possible I can always buy a new PSU. Website I'd like the parts to be from is ebuyer.com

That PSU is plenty.

XFX HD 4870 750M 1GB DDR5 DUAL DVI TV Out PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer
AMD Athlon II X4 620 2.6GHz AM3 Retail Boxed Processor - Ebuyer
MSI 770-C45 AMD 770 AM3 DDR3 Support 8 channel Blu-ray Audio GB LAN ATX Motherboard - Ebuyer
G-Skill 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz/PC3-12800 Ripjaw Memory Kit CL7(7-8-7-24) 1.65V - Ebuyer
Coolermaster Elite 330 Black Mid Tower Case - No PSU - Ebuyer
Western Digital WD5000AAKS 500GB SATAII 7200RPM 16MB Cache - OEM Caviar Blue - Ebuyer

that comes to a total of $365.91 inc. vat.

You have a bit of room still so you can either upgrade the video card to a 4890 or your cpu to a Phenom.
