Default Looking to upgrade.

After about 4 years, my build finally gave up on me. Refuses to start up, motherboard makes loud, grinding, noises. Regardless of whether or not I can simply troubleshoot and fix it, I've decided it needs to go and get caught up with the times.

I'm reusing my case, PSU, video card, sound card, and CD-DVD drive/burners. I've taken each one out one by one and they all seem to be working fine. Kind of illiterate on what all the numbers scribbled on the PSU means, but I can list it off if it'll help.



Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX

Any suggestions or changes I should make? I'm looking to go for a mix of a budget build but something that will last for a while. The total comes out to just shy of $400.

Forgot to mention I will not be overclocking. Updated post to try and cut the price slightly.
