It would help if you filled out the form in my sig, but some general recommendations, get this RAM
OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop

A 550W PSU would be plenty as well. Make sure that HDD is the .12 not the .11. Finally, I would recommend the 300 Illusion instead
Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower
