I think you will be getting more with your money getting this CPU/MB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.181196
That CPU OC's better than the X2 7750 BE and you should count on OC'ing if you want to play games.

That link world PSU is bad news, I would not use it. You need to get a different PSU, like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139008

Maybe go with a cheaper case too to offset the costs: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147110

Alright, with the above changes the total goes to $407.92, and it ends up being a bit cheaper due to less s&h. I've never oc'd any of my hardware before, so I suppose it will be a new experience. Should I buy a different fan or is the one the processor comes with good enough?

Any other suggestions? I'm aiming to order this relatively soon

I was going to suggest the same radeon 4850, but according to the revievs people have recently had problems with the rebate and overheating. Then again, everything could be just fine with it.
