    any reason why you want an IDE burner?
    case is fine
    psu is fine
    i'd get the X4 955 BE
    mobo is fine
    ram is fine
    WD Caviar Black or 7200.12 Seagate > Samsung
    HDMI cable is like $6 at firefold
    wait for 2nd gen Intel X25-M

    sweet thanks a ton man. The Intel X25-M is suppose to release this week isn't it?

    Also I currently have a core duo E6300 (1.8 ghz), would I be fine updating with a new mobo and just over clocking that to like 3.0 gzh?

    newegg had it up yesterday, but they pulled it off immediately
    intel says there's a bug and will fix it. it'll probably take a couple of weeks more

    new mobo?
    you mean, you'll just buy a new mobo for the E6300 and hold off the Phenom II build?

    with a 790 chipset board, the integrated 3300 gpu will be able to work in hybrid crossfire with the 3450 gpu.

    It wont boost performance to crazy levels, but it can help. You can keep the gpu for that much longer.

    Basically

    Antec 900
    500 watt PS from Antec Green (80% efficiency)
    Cosair 4 GB DDR3 1600
    AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE 3.2 gzh
    Western Cavier Blue 640 gb 7200 rpm hard drive
    MSI 770-C45 AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

    Is this a more improved build? The total cost would be roughly $615. Should I change anything before I order?

    you just have to decide which one
    definitely get a 790 chipset
    790GX = with integrated graphics
    790FX = supports dual X16 Crossfire
