I'm sorry, I'm a little lost on the point of this thread. You already bought all the parts, right? It's a little late to ask for advice if that's the case. Don't get me wrong, you didn't make any major mistakes. I'm still just trying to understand the point of the thread.

Well its for other people looking for a cheap decent build honestly but the pieces I have left to buy for my actual build are in this ( such as the ram )

OK, so you're thinking of building a similar build yourself? That makes a little more sense. I would make some changes.

This RAM has tighter timings and lower voltage:

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail $49.99

The 640GB drives are faster than the 500GB models due to higher data density.

Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM $79.99

I'm not so sure about the Apollo brand. If it was my computer, I'd probably go with this one instead:

POWERCOLOR AX4850 512MD3-DH Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail $129.99 - $20 MIR

It's even $10 cheaper if you consider the MIR.

You might want to step up to a 650W PSU if you're considering crossfire down the road.

CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Retail $94.99 - $20 MIR
