You could save a few dollars by getting this ram. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That power supply is very poor quality. It says 575 watts but is not. It is more like 400 watts. It is also not certified. Only buy certified power supplies. Non certified power supplies can fail and cause damage to the rest of your system. They also tend to be noisy.

This power supply is excellent and not much more expensive. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also the hard drive you link to is external and no longer sold. Amazon.com has some of the best deals on internal hard drives right now. If you can get by with 500gb, this is a very good deal. http://www.amazon.com/Western-Digital-Caviar-Cache-Desk...

I am assuming you already have some kind of case to put this in as well.

Uncertified, low watt PSU's are the number one reason for computer failure. It may work with your old build, but that's you OLD build. My old build was powered by a 300 Watt uncertified PSU, would it work with my current build? No. Also, you know how those computer components say, "you have to have at least so-and-so watts", always buy more than that. It will allow your system to remain significantly more stable and will allow you to OC your system more. The external HDD is fine, except external HDD's can be s-l-o-w. REALLY SLOW. Especially USB 2.0 external HDD, those are limited to 1.0 Mbps which means that on an average 7200 Rpm hard drive you are wasting 600 Kbps that could have been used during... EVERYTHING.

I think it should work, but don't do any OCing, you probably don't have enough power for that. Also, if you will ever upgrade your system, that PSU should be the first thing to go, but it should work, at least in theory, sorry, not an expert, I built my first rig this year.
