It looks good to me.

I am not familiar with aerocool or it's quality as a PSU. My short list of quality psu's would include seasonic, antec, PC P&C,XFX, and corsair. A top quality psu is probably the most important component for long term reliability.

You might consider a ssd for your OS and apps. everything will seem snappier.

Thanks alot, this is a great help.
I will definitely look into a ssd and look more closely at PSU's :)

Never heard of that RAM brand and they don't have another one. Only Biostar video cards?

Got some other site from here (the last one on that page):

Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R
Corsair XMS3 TR3X6G1600C8 3x2GB Kit DDR3-1600 1.65v CL8
Sapphire HD5670
Seagate Barracuda ST31000528AS
Corsair VX450W
Coolermaster RC-310-BWN1

This is all a great help.
As I said I am new to this and am trying to learn, so what is the difference between biostar and sapphire? (why sapphire?) and how do you chose a PSU?
