Default Cheap Rig. Need help

Hey guys, I need some help on this rig since this is the first one I've ever done.

I mostly play WoW

I need to know if everything is okay and if I picked the right stuff to work together

Also any suggestions to keep the price around $550 to speed it up would be appreciated!

Here's a picture of the shopping cart

choose a cheaper case. You would rather spend more one the psu and hd than a slightly better looking case.

Poke around the combos and see if you can't save another 20 bucks or so getting a combo deal on your processor and mobo or memory. Newegg is loaded with combo's that you can nickel and dime your way in to some better parts.

theres your memory and CPU and its 17 dollars cheaper. cause you buy it as a combo. That will pay for the upgrade in the PSU so its self fulfilling.

I have that PSU. Just got it to replace one that was making too much fan noise for comfort. Nice and quiet and the LEDs are not too bright.
