Default Gaming build opinions.

Hello all! A few months back I posted a build for a gaming build I had planned to put together. For one reason or another the build was put on hold, and I'm back to putting together a wish list.

I'll be looking to play FPS as well as the occasional MMO, so maximum performance isn't a must. As I stated in my original post, I'd like to land somewhere around 650-750 for cost.

What I've got so far:

Case : - COOLER MASTER Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Media : - Sony Optiarc Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+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/CD Rewritable Drive - CD / DVD Burners

HDD : - Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Graphics : - Suggested Products

PSU : - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

RAM : - G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL4D-4GBPI-B - Desktop Memory

Mobo/CPU : - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

With a monitor added I'm looking at around 870, so if anyone notices a place to cut cost it would be appreciated. Also, I asked for opinions a while back on a netbook and the community here was great in helping me make a decision. Thanks in advance

Ok, you don't have a video card in there, so you need to go cheaper on some items to fit a good one in.

CPU: - AMD Athlon II X4 620 Propus 2.6GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
Mobo: - ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards
Power supply: - Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies
RAM: - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-4GBNQ - Desktop Memory
Video card:

Now I don't know what that comes out to, might need to get a slightly cheaper case or harddrive.
