Hello. Perusing the forum, I see that this is a redundant topic. But I need some advice/input. I'm hardly tech savvy as this is my first attempt at building a computer, but I've done some research.

I'm trying to build a modestly priced system that has plenty of power and performance for gaming.

Ok, so this is what I've come up with so far:

CPU = AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4GHz Socket AM3 Quad Core

MOBO = Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6GB


HD = Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal

SSD = OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive

right now I'm at $510

Is this a good start and what should be my next moves? Video Card and memory?

Thanks for any help!
