I take it this is a budget build, given the parts and price. There are a number of things you should consider, case is not that great nor is the CPU/motherboard combo also you listed no operating system.
The below build is over your $511 limit but is significantly below $1000 and offers better performance.

Case: COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel , SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - This case isn't large but is of reasonable quality. If you're going for an SLI/Crossfire system, a larger full ATX tower would be preferred given to their cooling capacity. $50

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-MA780G-UD3H AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G - This is a better motherboard than the Biostar in that it has a newer chipset and allows for Crossfire. $90

CPU: AMD Phenom II X3 720 2.8GHz - One of AMD's newest processors, the 720 is cooler and more efficient than the one in the combo. Plus, it is triple core and Black Edition for your overclocking pleasure. $145

Power Supply: OCZ GameXStream OCZ600GXSSLI 600W ATX12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply - This PSU is by a proven company and will provide more than enough power even with most Crossfire configurations. $99 (Before $20 mail-in rebate)

RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 - This is solid RAM. The Gigabyte motherboard can take 8GB, so you can get two kits or buy one now and another later. $45

Optical Drive: LG SATA Combo Drive - A basic combo drive. $25

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black WD7501AALS 750GB - WD makes good drives, depending on your usage, this might be more than you need. $90

Video Card: MSI R4850-2D512-OC Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - This GPU will handle most games and will Crossfire with another dedicated card and is similar in performance to the 9800GTX. $114 (Before $20 mail-in rebate)

Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit - In order to use 4GB or more of RAM, you need a 64-bit operating system. $99

Total Cost: $760 (Before rebates)

I'm not a AMD fan but from what I can see it should be a decent unit.

I have used Biostar but I tend to avoid them.
[That's just personal preference though]

What is "good" is a matter of opinion.
Ask 10 people & you'll probably get at least 8 different answers.

Keep in mind it's real easy for people to make "recommendations" when they're spending somebody elses money.

As I said before, I'm no AMD fan boy.
I personally don't like AMD CPU's but that is a bias aquired from their much older products.

With that said between the AMD/Intel builds you listed ,bang for buck wise. I would have to go with the AMD.

[I think it would trounce the Intel]

I have a friend on another forum that recently built a AMD unit using one of their newer CPU's.
After seeing some screenshots of his benchmarks I'm seriously comsidering building a new AMD unit & retiring this one.

You're still going to have to get an OS which will cost $100, unless you go Linux. Due to licensing restrictions, you cannot reuse Windows from one PC on another unless it is a full retail copy, not an OEM or one you get with your PC. The case and PSU combo is also needlessly expensive. If you go back to my suggested setup and change the PSU to the BFG Tech GS-550 550W, you will save $50. If you want to save even more, the APEVIA ATX-CW500WP4 500W will work too. You can also save more cash by swapping out the 720 and going for the AMD Phenom II X3 710 it's slower and the multiplier is locked, but you do save $20. I wouldn't suggest doing that though. You can save more money by going for the GIGABYTE GA-MA770-UD3 AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard. It uses a slightly older chipset and does not allow for Crossfire, but will save $15, more after the rebate. Since the GA-MA770-UD3 does not use Crossfire, you can use any GPU you desire.
