Hello, Welcome to THG

First we need to know what the PC will be used for. What Rez monitor you will be using and what kind of budget you have.

For the PSU a good 550W would be all you need, less you will add another HD 5850 down the road. Then i would go to a 750W PSU ( Like a Corsair or XFX )

Well it looks good for your needs, I would go with a 750W PSU say a corsair so you can xfire down the road if you like. maybe look into a SSD drive for your OS and a few programs use the 2TB HDD for a storage drive. The ram i would look into 8 gigs for your needs.
