say no to green drives unless if used for secondary hard drives or storage, green drive = slow

i would recommend finding a 6gb/s HDD considering that your mobo is compatible and making sure it is 7200 rpm or higher. I am unsure if there are IDE versions of these types of drives but if there are then do not even consider an IDE drive, get SATA ( Serial ATA )

i agree with farinha, the i5 750 is the better deal.

you said you're looking at the i5 650 from aria which is 150.
Components Processors Intel Core i5 - Overclockers UK
idk where you were looking at that the 750 was 25 more, but you can get the 750 at overclockers for just 7 more. definitely worth the extra bit.

switch to this psu too.
OCZ PSU ModXStream Pro 500W- microdirect.co.uk

and skip the older interface ide optical drive, get a sata instead.

besides that everything looks good.

I agree with the others, you should buy the i5 750.

The problem with the 650 is your paying more for the built-in video. The 650 all by itself isn't worth $180 (I'm ignorant on 's), your paying $30-$50 more than it's worth because of a feature your not going to use.

The 650 is good for a Home Theatre setup or a plain jane office worker workstation, but for gaming your paying to much for to little. Either pay more for the 750 or switch to a AMD or stick with the 650 and be disappointed with your PC in a year or less.
