I don't see a case in your build.
If you do need a case, here is a good case/PSU combo:
Antec NSK4480B Black with Earthwatts 380watt PSU
Free shipping and is only $29.99 after a $40 MIR

And I forget to mention
LG 22" LCD W2241S-BF 5ms 8000:1

Everything looks pretty good but I would recomend 1 change:
OCZ ModXStream Pro 500watt bundled with Western Digital SE16 640GB
$89.98 after $20 MIR. A quality modular PSU for $20, hard to beat :P

Welcome to the forums!
With a P45 motherboard I would go with a ATI HD4850, since it supports Crossfire. Get the 1 GB version if you can.
For memory I would go with Corsair, OCZ, Patriot or Crucial.
Get 4 GB if you can.
