Everything looks awesome =)

I would suggest a 4890 1gb If you Prefer, and a gtx 275 from Nvidia if you like Nvidia more. Both offer similar performance ^-^

Also, If you haven't bought all these parts yet, I would suggest changing your hard drive to one of the WD Caviar Blacks. they also have a 500gb, but they are much faster than regular Drives.

When you get the graphics card you should upgrade your PSU, the GPU will determine how far you need to upgrade it. It looks pretty good for a simple low budget computer. What do you use it for?
