Default Final PC Build specs

Here's what I've got for a final PC build:

AMD A4-3400 and MSI A55M-P33 Mobo combo: $50

Corsair XMS3 8GB RAM: $40

Cooler Master TC101B Mid Tower ATX Case with 500W Power Supply $76

Asus 210 1GB DDR3 LP GFX card: $39

Western Digital 500GB Greenpower Serial ATA/300 16MB Buffer Retail Boxed Hard Drive - WD5000C.SRTL. HDD $60

I have an OS, anything else I need? If anyone can make it cheaper or better using parts from Frys.com only, I'd really appreciate it! I'm going to get it done finally!

Matt

selection is quite limited if only place you are shopping from is frys.com

2 things I want to point out to you though.

1st, don't bother getting the GeForce 210 video card.
your CPU has integrated GPU built in. and it looks like the integrated is better than the geforce 210. If you were only after the HDMI port on the 210, try using a DVI to HDMI cable on your motherboard's DVI port. I was able to get both video and audio from a such cable. I can't guarantee that it will work, but its worth a shot.

2nd, the green line of drive is more oriented as storage drives. it might not be the best choice as your main drive.

1. All I wanted was HDMI, I kinda wanted integrated so I was going as cost effective as possible
2. It's cheap enough :P

Better than the last one. Get 2x2 instead of 1x4.
