I would steer well clear of that power supply, APEX is merely a new name for allied, which is a new name for Deer, which is an OEM who is well known for making firecrackers that fit into computer cases. There is actually a review of that unit, its not pretty. It blew when oklahoma wolf was only pulling 342W DC from the unit, and when it blew, it blew good.

Other than that, i would probably swap the 500GB caviar blue for the Samsung F3 500GB, should be about the same price but its going to be faster, the blues werent built for speed, and the F3 has high density platters which make it quite quick for a hard disk.

Get a Antec EA380D. Just $28 on Amazon and good enough to run a HD6850.

A GT240 packs more punch than a HD4670, and this one costs just $48.

I dont see a case. You dont need one? If you do, this Antec 300 with 380W PSU is a decent deal for $60.

Also check out this 4GB PNY Optima RAM kit going for just $24.

Looks like an okay build for the most part; like others were saying, I would try to find a better PSU for the sake of your system.
