So, after some minor modifications to my original list of components I've come to a conclusion as far as which parts I'd be purchasing. I just thought I'd get a second opinion here again, since everyone was so helpful last time.

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…

GPU: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 1GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…

PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…

Motherboard: MSI 870A-G55 AM3 AMD 770
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…

HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…

DVD-ROM: LITE-ON 24X DVD Writer
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…

Fans: COOLER MASTER Megaflow 200 (x2)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…

COOLER MASTER SickleFlow 120mm fan (x1)
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER SickleFlow 120 R4-L2R-20AR-R1 120mm Silent operation Red LED case fan

As far as questions go, I only have a few:

A) Is everything compatible?

B) Is a 650w power supply acceptable? (I had spoke to a friend who said 750w was a little much so I lowered it down to 650w)

C) How would it fair in terms of gaming? (Maxed out @ 1920x1080?)

D) Comments, personal opinions or anything else you'd like to add?

I'd also like to apologize for making a second topic. I was planning on adding onto my old one but for some reason I wasn't able to edit my previous thread.

Thanks again for taking the time to read my thread. Much obliged!

the PSU only delivers the power your system requires and no more; so there really is no such thing as too much power supply; the 750watt would be a smarter choice in the long run.

Asus or Gigabyte would be a better Mobo choice.
Go with a 2X2GB matched RAM pair for better performance and to avoid any issues with a 4GB RAM stick.

A quick look through neweggs combo deals nets this:
Phenom II X4 965 + Asus M4A87TD/USB3 $231.98
Board is similar to the MSI above but with the newer 870/850 chipset
Oh man, that's awesome. I never would've saw that, I'll be picking up that board instead for sure, thanks man.

Thanks for the input man, I'll be picking up the 750w now, makes a lot more sense.

Thanks for the input. I'll check out some 2x2 RAM sticks.

Awesome input guys, I'll be getting this set of components for sure. Hopefully the parts will be in by next Monday or Tuesday. I'll post some pictures once it's all set up. Thanks for all the help, cheers :4-cheers:
