ok first of

looks ok cept for the power supply

ultra is mediocre ranging to pos

get something like antec,corsair,seasonic,xfx

i think the antec 750 and xfx 750 are currently the best bang for buck

corsair ram is good but over priced look into g.skill,mushkin or team group ram tey offer the same features at a better price
