First thing, don't use amazon. Use NewEgg

Their browser interface is much simpler and they are guaranteed to have a better variety.

Though as far as I can see this build should work, no errors at first sight. I'm glad to see someone go for AM3 socket, it's underrated.

As for improvement? I would need to know 2 things:

A. What the computer's main purpose is

B. What your budget is.

Hope you can get back to me

Regards, Deagonx

This is an opinion. Not advice. Some folks don't have any other option, and if you look carefully, he's linking from co.uk, where Newegg DOES NOT service.

Simon87: Your build looks solid, though I would recommend this heatsink instead, as it's less expensive, and does a phenomenal job cooling those AMD chips:

Otherwise, the rest of the build looks solid.
