Default New PC build, Need some advice?

Hi,
I am building a new computer, I have picked out all the parts. Does anyone have any opinions or improvements on it, while keeping around the same over all price. Especially this
http://www.komplett.ie/Komplett/product/ZKB_01COM/21_CPU/02_AMDAM3/productdetails/20098085/AMD_Black_Edition_FX_4100_3_6GHz_4MB_AM3%2b/FD4100WMGUSBX/default.aspx
vs

These are all the parts, it comes out to 544 excluding windows. I was also wondering if it is required to place 2 sticks of ram at minimum or can I use only 1 4gb stick?

Clicked on the GPU link, Ram, and a few others and they lead to a website front page- not to specific parts. If you want advice I would link the page that is specific to the part your asking about. Based on the name brand you listed it sounds fine - but cannot be sure as the links do not show specific parts.

The case is a great case. The CPU is fine - the i5 or i7 is preferred by most on this site- but the Phenom is definitely cheaper and a proven good CPU.

I would build a LGA1155 system....I can get a good one for less than 450 USD. Which could probably play battlefield 3.
