I've had the itch for a while, so I'm listing my iMac for $700 on Craigslist and (hopefully) buying this with the proceeds.
I've got an old case with a good power supply. The case is nasty beige, but the computer will be hidden anyway. All parts are from NewEgg. Primary uses are Netflix/Hulu, the occasional ripping & watching of DVDs, and playing RPGs like Mass Effect and Dragon age.

Been a while since I've done this, so any advice on specific equipment is appreciated. Total cost on this build as of right now is 593.65 including shipping. Anything I'm forgetting? Any parts or combos you dislike? I tried to stick with at least 4-egg components, but still appreciate a quick look.
