Any comments appreciated - BTW yes i am a noob with specs.
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.
