Default Advice on my PC parts list.

Hey guys, first post here, im happy to join the forums I'm literally minutes away from ordering this bundle, just wanted to make sure it'd be adequate for my purposes. I'm relatively inexperienced when it comes to computers, so any help would be appreciated.

CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 640 3.0GHz Quad-Core Processor ($98.99 @ NCIX US)
Motherboard: ASRock 970 Extreme3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($97.55 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($43.99 @ Newegg)
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($89.98 @ NCIX US)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 6770 1GB Video Card ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Rosewill CHALLENGER ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Cougar 700W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($135.98 @ Newegg)
Monitor: Acer S200HLAbd 20.0" Monitor ($89.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $725

Mainly for music, videos, CS Source, CS go when it comes out, and total war games also.
Am I missing anything? What do you guys think?

Here's a link to the list if youd like to see the product pages: System Build - PCPartPicker

Btw, this is maxed out budget

Get this RAM. $13 cheaper. - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

Not sure on that PSU. But you won't need 700W. Can save a bundle on that. A Corsair TX650 will handle your system fine.
