Depending on what resolution you play your games at, I would take a look at a 8800gt or 8800gts. If you are not going to overclock, then I would drop the Scythe Mugen and stick with the stock one. And I have never heard of that power supply before. Other than that, looks very good.

Not too sure on how good the Be Quiet! Straight Power series is, I'd go with something that people can verify the quality on like Corsair, PC Power and Cooling or an Antec Earthwatts or NeoHE. Other then that it looks good, the GTX is better at resolutions above 1680x1050 in general due to the extra memory and bandwidth.

drop to the E8400... and get a gts... both your cpu and gpu are overpriced in terms of price/performance...
