Is this good 600-800 PC build range?

do you plan on upgrading RAM ever?

I would do 2 4gb sticks unless you plan on going to 16gb soon

do you plan on overclocking? because if so i would get a beefier cpu cooler

Also I would get a small SSD just for your OS so you can improve system speed without adding to much $$.

Or if you got the cash do two 500 SSD's and put them in RAID

Think this is a bit better build for your budget. Removed the cooler and went to a 6500 instead. You won't notice a difference between the two and you couldn't overclock anyway because of your board. A much better PSU. Also added an SSD.
