First off, is there a reason you are using Tiger Direct? Newegg would be loads better.

That being said, there's quite a few things we could do to optimize this build. Give me a few minutes to get something together.

What's your final budget?

Also, your build was missing a HDD, do you have one or are you needing one?

^^^ Yes, do you have any parts you can recycle, like out of another computer? A hard drive, an optical drive, a ATX case...?

Alright, I got you a much better build for your buck.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
Newegg.com - Foxconn A7GM-S 2.0 AM2&#43; &#47; AM3 Ready AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards
Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-1150-TR GeForce GTS 250 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb&#47;s 3.5&#34; Internal Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives
Newegg.com - Thermaltake Purepower W0100RU 500W ATX 12V 2.0 Power Supply - Power Supplies
Newegg.com - APEVIA X-Plorer ATXB8KLW-BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases
Newegg.com - Sony Optiarc Black 24X DVD&#43;R 8X DVD&#43;RW 12X DVD&#43;R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA DVD&#47;CD Rewritable Drive - CD / DVD Burners

This all comes to $586.52 after shipping, then you get 35 bucks back in rebates, making it just over $550.

Now, there can be some tweaking to this build, no problem. It's tentative. But I got you a triple core processor, 4gb of RAM and generally better parts overall.

Kudos to your case pick, by the way. Used to be one of my favorite cases. I know people around here don't like Aspire/Apevia, but I've used that case before in builds and it's really made well, and it's not TOO flashy.
