Yes it's all compatible.... the thing you want to change is the hard drive. 5400rpm is terrible slow.....try and find one that is 7200rpm.

Also this system should not need 500 watts of power but it wont hurt it at the same time. More is fine.

Ok thanks I will go for a 450w psu and a 1tb 7200rpm. Is there any cables or stuff like that I will need?

PSU comes with all you need to connect to cards and mother board. The motherboard should come with some sata cables and things for your HDD. The spinpoint should have all you need for that as well. Mainly what people have to buy are the 8pin cpu extension cables and stuff like that for their PSU to reach the motherboard spots because their case is to big for the original wires to reach.
