MSI 870a G54 AM3

MSI Radeon HD 6850 1GB

Corsair CMPSU-55OVW 550W

CoolerMaster RC-690-KKN1-GP

Budget = as close to 900 as possible, but can go over.

**Still looking for a monitor (~150$), keyboard (~15$-30$), and speakers. Already have a mouse.

Any suggestions are welcome, thanks a lot!

Get a different motherboard. This would be good.

That looks like a great build, though I would still stick with the MSI board. They just seem better made.

I suggest the Asus VE228H 21.5" Full HD HDMI LED BackLight LCD Monitor for a monitor. Asus is making some good monitors. Given the higher contrast and low power consumption, I always suggest LED backlights even though they are a little more expensive. It is also difficult to find HDMI on monitors below this size.
