I want to use the 4850 now.
And wait for the price drop for 5XXX series.
Is there any problem with my current built?
Or any other suggestion?
Thank you

I think your links are broken, but don't get that PSU or HDD. Also, the 4850 might struggle slightly at that resolution, it's fine for a temporary setup though.
