Guide for a very good computer (budget $666)

Ok, today we'll see how we can build a "very good" tower with a budget of $666 (no pun intended). 
  • Motherboard; MSI 870A-G54 which costs $99 Or a GIGABYTE 890GPA-UD3H for $135
  • CPU; Phenom II x4 955 BE for $145 or a Phenom II x4 965 BE for $160
  • PSU; SeaSonic S12II 520 520w  for $60 Or any 80+ 500w+ PSU.
  • Case; Lian Li K58/W for $70 or CM690 II for $70
  • GPU; 6850 for $180 or a 460 (1 GB) for $180
  • RAM; 4 GB DD3 $42
  • HDD; 1TB for $70
TOTAL: $ 666*
