I actually recommend downgrading a lot of it since the total is now over 700$
Seriously, if you ask around, most of what I posted is probably the most bang for your buck 700$ computer you can get. Although if you can, people will say to get the 6800GS video card.

To build a budget PC you must use budget parts and names I always say just get the base started then upgrade as you go. The most important aspect of this that you do not want to go cheap on is the motherboard and case. Your physical case structure is what will determine the capacity of your future upgrades. Your motherboard will determine what you can and can not add in the future. Every other part can easily be swapped out later for more high performance parts (CPU, RAM, VIDEO CARD, POWER SUPPLY, HD, CD-ROM, SOUND CARD)

it isn't that hard to do I had the same exact budget but less so look at my sig and then you can add all of the minor stuff, DVD drives (NEC), Case (I used my old one), fans, video card, you can make 700 dollar budget soo easy with this set-up.
