First off, get the Radeon HD 5770, it's better and has DX11 for the same price as GTX 250

This case is a bit better too

other than that what you have looks really good :) 

even if you didnt take my recomendations its a good setup, however i would definately try to get the 5770 if you can, as it is better than the GTX 250
