This a good $600-650 budget?

I'm throwing a build together for my buddy and he just needs a tower, no m/kb or OS. He is playing at 1920x1080 and he wants the chance to upgrade to an i5 in the future.

I have a Frys that will price match the cpu from microcenter, but they wont price match the mobo deal they though.

After tax and everything it comes out to about $620, the only thing im not sure about is the psu. I see that some ocz psu's arent bad but im not sure which this one is.

Anything I should change?

I would go with a better motherboard for future upgrades. that one is below the point where it's worthwhile to buy a Z77 board. overall this looks better:

http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0359809 - cpu

your total would be $649
