Do you plan on overclocking? If no, then you don't need that heatsink.
Get this ram, its cheaper and faster http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
That PSU is junk, plan on Crossfire? Ill tell you a PSU when you answer that.
This hdd is faster for same price http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
This case is much nicer for $10 more http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

Yes if you aren't overclocking use the stock one. The 9800 GTX + is just a bit better than the 4850.

No, your GPU limits that. That GPU is pretty low on the totem pole.
