My System Specs

Default $500 Gaming Build

Hello all im new to this forum and im wondering what you all think of the parts i have picked for my new gaming computer. Its not the first computer i have built but it is the first time i have picked out the parts myself. 6 months ago I sold my old gaming computer my dad helped me build to switch to the ps3 so i could game with my friends... BIG MISTAKE! lol.

so here are the specs...
AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3
Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 8GB kit
Fractal Design Core 1000 mATX case
Thermaltake TR2 500W
MSI Radeon HD 7770 1gb
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB

i want to go with a i5 and a 660 ti but im saving for school and cant spend a lot so i have made my budget $500 Before Taxes and Shipping. what do you all think? is there anything you would change? Anything that would make it better but keep it under the $500? if this is what i go with i will later upgrade the processor to the FX-8350 i think it is, ill up grade to 16gbs and ill upgrade the video card to the 660 ti. so want do you all think?
