I want to know you opinions on my current build, and it is barely within my budget. I want to use it for gaming and recording on average settings.
I would get to sticks of 4gb unless you plan on upgrading later since dual channel>single and if you can get a non reference graphics card it would run coole but it probably won't matter much.
I don't know how you feel about AMD builds (some people have very strong opinions one way or the other) but here is an alternate build that I saw (mostly) on youtube.

The case is just a budget one, but you can find others for about the same price.
Ahh thanks, I have some friends who recommended the i5 over the FX. I have a few AMD builds, but this looks very promising. Thanks again!
If you want a decent case, with amazing reviews, absolutely perfect airflow and cable management system go with CoolerMaster's Scout 2 Advanced, it's about $60-$80 but it will last a lifetime.
