Another 1st Build Help Thread
Hello gentlemen. I've browsed these forums for quite some time now and you all seem like a nice friendly community and I decided to come to you guys for help. I'm not the most tech savvy person but I managed to conjure up a low budget gaming build with the help of the guides here. I wanted to make one or two adjustments and to confirm the compatibility as well as any other sorts of advice.

Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
$50 @ Newegg

ASRock H61M/U3S3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
$75 @ Newegg

Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor G850 2.9GHz 3MB LGA1155 CPU
$83 @ Amazon

SilverStone Strider 500W, 80 PLUS, Active PFC Power Supply ST50F-ES
$60 @ Amazon

Crucial CT2CP25664BA1339 4GB 2GBx2 240-pin PC3-10600 DIMM DDR3 Memory KIT
$24 @ Amazon

And for the GPU I had quite a few choices. I mainly just play Starcraft 2, and plan on getting Diablo 3, Mass Effect 3 so being able to run these are high-ultra at a cheap price would be my goal. Future proofing would be nice too if at all possible. I might even plan on getting Skyrim but I don't need Skyrim on insane settings if it means a whole new league of GPUs.
These are just two I found.

XFX ATI Radeon HD6770 1 GB DDR5 VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Video Card HD677XZNLC
$110 @ Amazon

HIS Radeon HD 6770 1 GB (128 bit) GDDR5 Eyefinity DisplayPort 2x DL-DVI (HDCP) HDMI PCI Express X16 2.1 Video Card
