Default help with computer build

I notice there are alot of knowledgeable people on this forum, so I ask you to help me with my build. I am not to up to date on the latest, and I just chose what seemed to be the best deal on newegg.

I don't really have a price limit, but I don't want to blow money. Basically I use my computer to play l4d, wow, team fortress, and I watch a ton of movies and some slight photoshop.

I go to friends houses alot, so I am looking for something semi-portable , which is why I chose the micro/mini motherboards. If you think I should upgrade, or downgrade based on my needs I will most likely do that.

My mini build
motherboard and graphics card


case and power supply


hard drive


total cost = 454

my micro build

graphics card


power supply




motherboard and ram




total cost = 408

TBH, that video card sucks.
Go with a HD 4670.

I would go with the Phenom build, much more powerful. An atom won't be able to do hardly anything.
