Maybe a bigger case, the 5870 is quite big. Also for the PSU better go Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, XFX. If you consider adding a second video card later get a 650-750W one.

I was going to say something more critical in my first post but didn't cuz there's nothing really wrong with your build.
I'll nitpick now Thermaltake cases are cheaply built if you can buy a similiar Antec, Cooler Master,Lian-Li at the same price point do so they are higher quality.

Same as mosox said about the psu if you can stretch your budget a bit.
