I would change the memory to this

The PSU to this

or this corsair

Change the hard drive to a samsung F3 or barracuda 7200.12

The graphics card I would wait for the 5830 for around $200 or grab a 4890 based on performance or a 5770 for comparable performance to a 260 and it has DX11. I would personally go go for the 5770

Everything else looks good
