What are you going to be doing on this computer?

Your hard drive is horribly slow to use a boot drive, and that video card isn't going to do much beyond video playback. Also, do not buy a coolmax PSU. Brands I recommend are cooler master, corsair, antec, seasonic, OCZ, PC power & cooling.

Post a budget and I can give you some links.


EDIT: That is an APU board. It will not be compatible with the phenom II. Get one with an AM3 socket.

Any game you want. Probably not the highest settings on more recent stuff, but it'll still run them great on medium.
