Whats your whole budget?

That build doesn't look great, because of the Low-End Case PSU, and that brand name is an unknown

tenenbaums build is good, but change the mobo to a gigabyte ds3r which is 99 after MIR and maybe a cheaper case so you have enough for a bigger hdd, like the coolermaster 330

My comment was directed at the OP, but I didn't see Tenenbaum's build, its not bad though..


Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum Revision 2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Get the case that the OP wanted with a Corsair 550vx
