Cool What do you think of this computer build for gaming?

I've learnt a lot about computers these past days, I've put one together for you guys to look at! I hope I'm allowed to post this as I have been complained at for making too many posts. I'm deeply sorry if this does not qualify as a different topic, the other post is cluttered with nothingness.

Please tell me if anything is not compatible or your have another suggestion in a similar price range:

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black, Deneb Core, S AM3, 3.2GHz, 8MB Cache, HT 3600MHz, 125W, Retail

Asus M4A78LT-M, AMD 760G, AM3, PCI-E 2.0 (x16), DDR3 1600/1800, SATA 3Gb/s RAID, Micro ATX, VGA

1GB XFX HD 5830, PCI-E 2.1 (x16), 4500MHz GDDR5, GPU 840MHz, 1120 Cores, DP/ 2xDL DVI-I/ HDMI

500W Coolermaster Elite Power Power Supply (PSU)

500GB Samsung HD502HJ Spinpoint F3, SATA 3Gb/s, 7200rpm, 16MB Cache, 8.9 ms, NCQ, OEM

first off what is your price range ? second as ur going AMD you should also consider intel there new quad core sandy beach range smashes the AMD 6 core processor, so search Intel I5 2500k. also if you do go AMD i would suggest this motherboard, its in your price range and in my opinion, and experience with AMD, allot better - Asrock M3A UCC AMD 480X Socket AM3 6 Channel Audio ATX.. | Ebuyer.com

First, gunzidiot, "sandy beach" made me the happiest I have been today, so thank you.

As gunzidiot said, try sandy bridge processors. Also, you might consider the Antec Three Hundred case and either an Antec or Corsair power supply

I'm buying all my products from Scan at the moment. My price range including a graphics card (I'm considering using my lesser one at the moment to save on costs) is around 400, and without around 300. The intel processor you listed is just a bit out of my price range, being almost double the price.
