you will ned a bigger hard drive than that. Better to get a large, fast wd black or samsung spinpoint than that tiny ssd. You could get away with a fast core i5 as the i7 wont give you much more boost in performance. $200 labor is too much IMO (that really depends what part of the world your from). You will also need to add the cost of the OS (windows7) and any other software you need.

You need triple channel memory for the i7 build, so something 3x2gb or so.

The G.SKILL Phoenix Pro Series is a better faster SSD

You don't need a 850 watt power supply for one mid line or even one high end video card. A good quality 500w from Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, Enermax or similar quality will be fine and will save you a couple of bucks.

40.00 for a fan is a bit expensive.

Finally... Consider building it yourself, you will save a lot of money, and people here love to help newbie's with new build questions.
