Default Building new computer, need help.

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P

Processor: AMD FX-4100

RAM: Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory

DVD: ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Power Supply: LOGISYS Computer PS550ABK 50Watts ATX12V Power Supply W/SATA

Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium

These are all the specs that I think you should need, the Motherboard has a inbuilt sound card in it , I have the price range at about $750-$800 USD is this a good price or could I do better?

Thanks.

Oh sorry, yes I do, I have a AMD Radeon HD 6850 Graphics card that I would purchase with it too, I've been told the processor isn't good and that I should upgrade to a Phenom II? What are your thoughts?


Edit: AMD Radeon HD 6850 Graphics card with the top parts too.

In some respects. the Phenom II is faster because it has more FPUs.

I think FX-4100 is a smart choice. What will you do with this machine?

Price range looks about right, too.
