Looks solid for your price range. The one thing I'd want, if it was mine, is a better case. Maybe I'm just paranoid but with all the new powerful components out there, I'd like to make sure ventilation and cooling are taken care of.

Don't. The only good thing about this psu is the price, and there's a reason for that. There should be plenty to choose from in the $60-$90 price range that are both sturdier and more reliable. Antec, Seasonic, OCZ are good places to start. It isn't worth risking the rest of your $500 investment on a cheap psu; the mfr only has a 1 year warranty on the product. Stay away.

dvd burners are so cheap that even if u dont use it, u might as well put it in

i would change that hard drive, thats a 2.5 inch (laptop size) hard drive and its only 5400rpm

hard drive market is terrible right now cuz of the flooding, so prices are going way up.
better off with a seagate/samsung/wd/or anything 7200rpm 3.5 inch hard drive. looking at the prices, that will be around 105-125
(kinda sad, cuz about 6 months ago, hard drives like that woulda been 50-60 bucks)

power supply? u wont need alot of power, but always good to get a decent brand, i personally dont like skimping on power supply. not saying u have to get a huge wattage power supply, but a reputable and efficient one would be good (corsair, seasonic, antec, even some ocz)

as for the video card, i think if u shop a bit more, might be able to get a bit better bang for your buck. but still a good card nonetheless

hard drive is definitely the thing that i'd change though

Why would you try to build a gaming PC with that case and PSU?

I'd check your local bestbuy for a hard drive. For whatever reason their prices are still somewhat decent on them. The bestbuy near me had a 1tb 7200 rpm hdd for around $55.
