    Even for occasional gaming, you'll want something better than that FX5500, maybe a radeon 9600

    I agree with what's already been said but I'll add my concerns for the choice of PSU, it'll likely be found wanting and I'd suggest a 480W+ one.

    Assuming this is not for overclocking and only for lite gaming...

    I'd look into a different board. If you just stick with socket 754, which leaves you with very limited upgrading option but makes the processor much faster now, I'd also recommmend an nForce 3 250 board. For the cheapest option without sacrifcing performance, the Eopx EP-8KDA3J would be best. For a more feature-rich board, the Gigabyte GA-K8NS PRO would be good.

    That RAM is overpriced and no good... A Mushkin dual pack or a coule sticks of Corsair Value Select would be better and cheaper.

    As was said, the PSU that comes with that case is no good. I'd suggest you find something cheaper without a PSU (personally I like the $26 Raidmax cases that come without PSUs). For a PSU a Thermaltake 420W ought to do it for this system. A 480W would be good, but probably unecessary if you aren't using anything more powerful than a Radeon 9600.

    I'd actually get a 9550 since a decent (128-bit) 9600 will cost a lot more and the only advantage is a higher core speed. If you want something more powerful, though, this ought to do the job for the least amount of money.

Then I got 26$ thermaltake 420w psu (thanksgiving sale) I went with a mushkin dual pack, and the eopx ep-8dka332hds3khs32 :) Anyways, Thanks for all who helped, specially Yawg. You've helped a lot in my buying of computer components just wanna thank ya again!
