You have two power supplies listed, a seasonic x400 and a visiontek. Please straighten that out.

Also, you have a green drive as your primary storage. That is a mistake as it is too slow and will constantly be spinning up and down on you. Go for a Blue or Black drive.

That graphics card falls right into the middle of the road. Good performance, and good price. No need to get anything more expensive for what you want to do.
