Everything looks good, but I would change the power supply to this one: I use ocz, and they are quiet and pretty reliable; also a good value compared to some of the other name brands. Antec, corsair, seasonic, and enermax are all good branded names. None are cheap.

I'll add my vote for a better power supply. These cheap PSU's have been known to cause headaches. Unfortunately, they're the kind of headache that aspirin has no noticeable effect on.
