Intel Core i5 750 2.66GHz
Zalman CNPS9900A CPU cooler (Zalman ZM-STG2 Super Thermal Grease)
MSI P55-CD53 P55 Socket 1156
Kingston 8GB (4x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz HyperX Memory Kit CL7 1.5V
XFX GTX280 640MHz 1GB GDDR3
500GB samsung IDE hard drive, but might buy a 1.5 TB samsung hard drive aswel

No I doubt it, I'd get this one instead
CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7

But I'd also change a number of other components in your build, but first if you wouldn't mind filling out the form in my sig, it would save some time.

Just get 4gb of RAM, there's no need for 8gb for gaming. Do you really mean an IDE HDD or is it the SATA F3? Get the Hyper 212 Plus HSF. One ODD should be fine? Go with the Corsair I linked above. And get a Radeon 5850 or 5770 depending on your budget
