    Give us a budget to work with, what you'll be using the computer for, and your preffered place to buy from. Maybe we can come up with something better than what you have listed(we usually do).

    You will be limited with gaming with such hardware, if you want to max your games later down the line buy a nice psu and gpu as the cpu you have chosen is good.

    8 GB RAM and Caviar Black are not 'budget'....although cheap...

    that graphics card is horrendous, go one generation or two higher.

    No overclocking = no extra fans needed, stock Intel is good.

    Check the audio specs of the mobo, it looks sup par.

    What do your local shops have at the same price tag as the 5770, 750 & the Intel board? I am talking about including AMD cpu's and all sockets, not just s1156/P55.

    local shops = CROOKS

    If you have a microcenter near by then I say go there and find your parts.

    If you can add 100$ more and order from newegg (if your in the states) then I would suggest this build. It would be one of the fastest builds you could buy
