My System Specs

Default Thoughts about my build?

Hi guys,
This is not a new build, i built it like in November, December.
So, what do you think?
MoBo: MSi Z68MA-G45
CPU: i5-2400
GPU: Zotac GTX 550 AMP! Edition
PSU: Aerocool StrikeX 600W
Case: Aerocool VX-9
HDD: 2TB WD
Monitor: Viewsonic 24" LED Backlit 1920x1080
Razer Arctosa
Razer Abyssus Mirror Essential
LiteOn 24x ODD

i'm not into overclocking i just want a daily use computer. i'm not much of a gamer. i play games like: Protoype, CoD 4: MW3, GTA:SA, GTA IV, NFS:Carbon, NFSU2 and Dirt 3.
Hope i get some positive feedback on my build. btw, this is my first build and i'm on a budget. Also, parts here in our country are limited. :)

Not going to be able to max dirt 3, or MW3 with that graphics card, I would try and get a 560Ti minimum if you want to play any newer games.
