Default How does this build look?

Hi all, I'm relatively new to the world of building computers and have been putting together a computer build, hoping that I'm doing it right and that everything will be compatible. How does everything look?

Raidmax Blade ATX-298WY Black/Yellow Steel/Plastic Case

Gigabyte GA-A75m FM1 AMD A75 SATA 6GB/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard(Micro ATX Form Factor)

AMD a8-3850 Quad Core with integrated AMD Radeon HD 6550D graphics

8gb 240pin DDR3 SDRAM

Optical Drive- ASUS DVD Burner 24xDVD+R/48xCD-ROM

Diablotek DA Series PSDA500 500W ATX Power Supply

I already have a 1TB HDD with Operating System, Monitor, Keyboard, and Mouse.

Any input would be great, I understand that this setup is probably not ideal, but I'm hoping it will be a decent machine considering my budget.

Well, what is your budget and what do you want to do with this PC?

First thing I'll say is, don't skimp on your PSU. You want a good name brand PSU like Antec, Corsair, Siverstone, Thermaltake, ect.

I'm basically wanting to play Diablo 3. That's about it.

Youll probably want to get a video card for gaming. I dont think that the integrated graphics are going to cut it. you should pick up a 6770 for ~$120 as a minimum.
