Default First build in 3 years..

So after being away for a couple years I got the urge to get back in...but I am also cheap/broke so I had a hard time getting this build together. Thank god for eBay and Craigslist.

Mobo - Foxconn M61PMP
CPU - AMD Athlon X4 645
Ram - 4GB DDR3 AMD stick
GPU - HIS 5770
PSU - OCZ Modstream 650watt
Case - Antec 300
HDD - Seagate 1tb (2tb external as well)


So what do you guys think? I probably have around 300 in the whole setup adn so far it runs everything I need it to.

Get at least a Phenom II. Athlons are long gone.

What RAM is that? Make/Model?

This is the ram: Newegg.com - AMD Entertainment Edition 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model AE34G1339U2

I already bought the setup so I cant change anything, I was going to get a phenom but I found the Athlon II on ebay for $50.
