From the looks of it I don't really like the case, I recommend you change it with a HAF 932/922 and use a Corsair TX750 PSU, the motherboard is okay for the CPU I think.

You can change the Graphics Card to an ATI card, they use less power and emit less heat. I recommend the HD 5770 or the HD 5830. The Wireless LAN card isn't necessary, you can just use a wired connection.

I also thing it would be better if you were to change your 32-bit OS to a 64-bit OS. The HDD could be changed to a Samsung Spinpoint F3.

You may get more help if you'd fill out the template in my sig.

Unspecified things like your budget and where you're ordering all this from.

From the looks of it, that thing looks like a prebuilt or something you're configuring on a website with set choices.
