    Ok, that all works together (and as the previous poster mentioned, don’t forget Windows 7) but a couple of things stand out.

    First, what are you building the computer for? Everyday use and maybe occasional light gaming- titles like Rift or WoW and maybe Call of Duty: Black Ops? Because that’s what you’ve built. For Skyrim or SWTOR you’ll want at least a Radeon HD 6770. For Battlefield 3 you’ll want at least a Radeon HD 6850 or 6870.

    For gaming, the most important component in a computer is the GPU (graphics card), not the CPU (processor). The GPU accounts for 75% of your performance in games, so it should be the most expensive component in a gaming build, not the CPU. If you chose a Core i3 2120 and Radeon HD 6850 you’d get MUCH better performance in games, for the same price.

    The other issue is that power supply, it’s not a good one. Never go with a really cheap power supply because those are very likely to fail/burn out early, and can even damage other components when they go. For your original build a 400 watt power supply is more than enough. For a Radeon HD 6770, 6850 or 6870 graphics card, a 500W power supply is plenty.

    Just get one from a quality brand like Antec, Corsair, Silverstone, Seasonic or XFX.

    Overall, you might find better prices at Ebuyer or Aria, check and see.

    Here’s the Radeon HD 6670:

    Yep, looks good!

    And don’t forget Windows 7 (64bit version)

    EDIT: I agree with J S on this one. If there is one thing you need to buy that is high quality, it should be the PSU.

    Although I’d go with the Corsair CX600

    they will work just fine!
    i would suggest another power supply thu, like this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fractal-Design-Integra-Efficiency-Supply/dp/B003MZUWJY/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1328043619&sr=1-1
    slightly more expensive, but its a good brand with a 80+ Efficiency mark
    the last thing you want to do is to be cheap with the power supply, a good quality power supply like the integra for example could very well deliver more power then a low quality one that says 650 watts for example.
