Well for your budget i would upgrade to the gts for the better cooling,but other than that looks good.

Drop the ThermalTake power supply for a PC Power and Cooling Silencer 610W. Its a great power supply at a great price and is still well over what you need for that system, even if you were to go for a 4GHz overclock and put dual(likely even triple) 8800GTXs in your system.
