Everything looks alright...I would recommend getting a better psu...but, everything is decent enough...but, it would probably be a better idea if you used Intel parts..you could actually build something a bit more powerful

550 ti is overpriced at $150. A 460 gtx 768 is cheaper and faster. Also consider a 6850 around the $150 price point. Keep in mind that for a $800 build I would recommend spending around $200 on the GPU. I highly suggest you get this card, it is an amazing deal and the cheapest I've seen a good brand 560 ti go for:http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500190&cm_re=560_ti-_-14-500-190-_-Product

1280x1024 is really an old school resolution and your new system will be overkill. If you need to stay in budget, downgrade to a 955 be and get a new 22" lcd monitor, even going to 1680x1080 will be a huge difference.
