Default Outdated, creating a new build

My comp is quite outdated for the current games out, and I need to build a new comp for MW2 along with Starcraft 2 and other games coming out in the near future. Also keep in mind I'm on a strict budget of around $550
Here is what I'm lookin at, I'm not to familiar with the newest technology out, as computer hardware progress too fast. Let me know if anything is incompatible.

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128398

Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220410

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103706

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148395

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150369

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817152033


Thanks!

All looks fine, IMO. I would just shop the products around. See if you can find any of those items on TD for less. Because orders from TD over 100 dollars but under 35 pounds get free shipping. And I found this which might be some good use to you. I have used Ultra's PSU's before and I am quite pleased. Plus, you get a lifetime warranty.

Though I think you've forgotten a case. That is, unless you plan to use the one you currently own.

Hmm, ok thanks I'll look through TD also, and sorry I forgot to mention that I bought the case a month ago, (Thermaltake Tsunami)... The thing is though my shipping came up to $8 because most of the items have free shipping. The thing with newegg is, its located in california so I'm having to pay $50 in tax

OUCH. It might be cheaper to take a car ride to a remote location in a surrounding state.

i would pick RAM with lower timings, if you find RAM that runs at 1333MHz and has a CAS latency of 7 then it'll be faster than the current RAM that you've picked.

Oh sounds good, only reason why I picked that ram is because its tested with AMD overdrive and the 790gx chipset.

all RAM should work on your motherboard just as long as its DDR3.
