you don't need an apu as you are buying a discrete graphics card, get the X4 760k or the X4 860k. Also get at least a 500 watts psu as the cx series isn't that efficient. A 80+ gold would be ok. Also if its for gaming try getting another 4 gigs later on (buy an identical dimm)... Get the WD caviar blue which is better than the Seagate.
