First gaming computer: opinions needed

I've been thinking about doing game reviews and play throughs (like everyone and their dog) so I didn't/don't want the best parts. I just want parts that will let games like WoW and SCII play correctly and I can run recording programs, like frapps or xsplit, in the background. I'd also like to have dual monitors going so I can tell when the recording software inevitable freezes

I've already bought all of the parts there except for the video card. Am I going to need to make any changes to this build
what Peripherals would you suggest I use *will I need a sound card and wifi connector for this?

You already bought the PSU? That's the last thing you buy, now your GPU selection is going to be constricted.

Send it back if you can because you're already at 50% load without a GPU. That's where you want to be AFTER you picked out the GPU.

Oh. I didn't even know I needed a GPU. I didn't see it in the parts list. Actually had to google what that meant just now. So other then to get a better PSU is there anything else wrong with this?

One thing I didn't think of is if you were just going to run off the integrated video in the CPU where you wouldn't need a discreet card.

Why such a small hard drive? If this is just the simplest of builds try to spend a little more on a cheap 120gb SSD.

I was going with that hard drive because, to my under standing, you can always add more and it's going to be a while before I get more money. I was just going to add in more when I got more money and, depending of what people said, other things.
