So i just bought a couple of toys and i was wondering if i made the right choices. Im on a very small budget with a child on the way so im trying to do this cheap but good enough to run the games i want.

Asus M4A785TD-M EVO motherboard


AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition processor. 3.2ghz

The games i usually play are like call of duty, dragon age, wow, killing floor.

I still have to get the ram which i intend to get atleast 4gbs of ddr3 (1600)

and last but not least the mother board comes with an ati radeon 4200 series graphics chipset, i know that wont be enough for most of the games i play so any suggestions would be great. also any thoughts or feedback on how my motherboard and processor have worked for you would be helpfull to.

cpu & board are good, but look for newer boards (amd 870/890 chipset).
4gb ddr3 1333 plus 64bit os.
what about psu? 400w single +12v@30 minimum, don't buy cheap psu, decent psu cost $50 or more.
Nvidia geforce 240 gt with gddr5 or geforce 250 gts.

I started to write a response, then realized that kuwese pretty much nailed it. This will support the RAM choice of DDR3-1333:
