It's fine build, but yes what PSU?

This is not really better... unless you think you might need to upgrade to 8GB in the future:

ASRock DDR3 P43 MB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I never quite understand how these guys do this... P43 is not supposed to support DDR3. ASRock is always doing stuff like this and making it work.

G.Skill DDR3 1333 CAS 7
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It's the same performance as the RAM you chose, same price, only DDR3.

If you were doing some memory intensive task I would say go DDR3 now, but for a budget build it doesn't make much difference.

Check out my post, i am also building a $500 gaming rig. Im using a 4850 also, but i have the antec case w/ 500 w psu.

For your hdd, i would get something maybe 32 cache if that matters to you.
