My son will play some games but not to the extreme due to he has a PS3, Internet 30%
Video 40% and work. My Budget was $900. Canadian and was able to meet it .
For now I will install Windows XP Pro since I have the licence and later on will migrate to Win 7 pro.
Its my first built PC and after several days of research I came to this set up. Please tell me if system could be improved or if its a good setup. thanks
No Overclocking will be done. And I have no experience on how to.

Do you mean watching video when you say "Video 40%"?
If so, change the processor to an i5 750 and definitely buy a power supply from a well known brand. These include Antec, BFG, Coolermaster, Corsair, Enermax (would be better than the one that comes with that case), OCZ, PC Power & Cooling, Silverstone, Thermaltake. 500W should do.
If you have money left over after that, try and get an ATI Radeon HD 5770. As it is a much better video card than that GTS 240
