Not too shabby. What are you using for a video card?

i dont recommend logisys for a power supply. psu's are one of the few components that you must not go cheapo on. you also dont need 650w for all that. you are probably fine with a 550-600 if that. make sure you get a psu with a 6 pin connecter for your video card. i recommend antec, pc power anc cooling, silverstone, corsiar, ocz, cooler master, thermaltake, zalman. you really dont want to mess with a cheap psu because it can fry your whole system if something goes wrong. for your build i recommend getting this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341010

it may be a bit pricey (not really) compared to your logisys, but its well worth it.

I'd go with this cooler instead of the CM.

Unless you already have a copy of XP, I'd pick up Vista 64 bit instead.

And a 780G board isn't very expensive, and it would be a lot better than the one you selected as it supports all the new Phenoms, unless you plan on SLI'ing.

+1 to Cornholio's post.

yes, great post, do not skimp on the psu, it's probably the most important part of a build and if it is cheap and blows up it could take some other components with it, then you're back at square one...

I skimped on my first build with a Powmax Assassin, after about 9 months it pretty much assassinated itself one day while I was at work, thankfully it didn't take any other components with it when it went "Pow", plus I never got my rebate (it was $25 shipped with a $25 MIR, lesson learned from that fiasco)...

this is a very good psu and fits your criteria, a little over $90 and there's a MIR to bring it close to $60...
