You've got DDR2. You need DDR3. The ones to get are the G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2 GB DDR3 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 for $115.

XCLIO's PSU aren't that good. I'd get an OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W. It's in a combo with the Samsung Spinpoint F3 for $95 after rebate.

I would highly recommend looking at some AMD builds, specifically using the Asus M4A79XTD EVO ($110 after rebate). Check out the X3 425, X4 620 or higher. See if those would allow you to get an HD 5850.

Alright, i switched my PSU and RAM to what MadAdmiral suggested.

Now then, i guess i would like to see some AMD builds for about the same price as this pc was going to cost me.

If anyone could show me a build, or pick one out for me, that has VERY similar specs as the one i already made (but maybe with the 5850?) that would be awesome.
