Question PC build for $450 or less

I will probably stick to my orignal plans of buy the parts list below in my signature but i was wondering if there is a better build for the money. the cpu,mobo,RAM, graphics, case, and PSU are the the only things that i need. Can anyone find a better build for around the same price??

Looks like a great build for $450; however, I have one suggestion. I'd get this 7600GT instead of the 7600GS. It's $3 more, and it comes out cheaper after the rebate. And I'd say the upgrade would be worth ~$30 IMO to make, so you're making a good deal. If you've got a little extra money to throw around, you could also get a 7600GT KO, which is pretty much the same thing with a better heat sink for $10 more. But I wouldn't really worry about that unless you're a mad overclocking fan. The motherboard and processor are of good quality too.

And I can't really see what PSU or case you are planning on getting; maybe I just overlooked it?

Good luck with the build; that's my 2.

ASUS A8N32 SLI-Deluxe, AMD Athlon X2 3800+ @ 2.8GHz, eVGA 8800GTS 320MB, 2GB Corsair XMS DDR400, 160GB WD HDD + 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10, AC Freezer 64 Pro, 700W OCZ GameXStream, NZXT Zero :D

I think I've decided to leave... maybe I'll come back sometime.

After all the PSU is probably the most important part of your machine before anything else. Its that which powers your beauty
