[New Build] Decent Gaming Build?

I'm upgrading from my last gaming rig so I just wanted to get a few opinions.
AMD Phenom 955 x4 3.2Ghz
Foxconn A76ML-K 3.0 AM3
500gb Seagate 7200.9RPM HDD
nVidia Geforce 9500GT 1gb 128bit
350w PSU
SilenX EFZ-92HA3 Fan and Heatsink
EVERCOOL EC-HD-SC Plastic HDD Cooler
And some Arctic Silver Thermal Compund.
I've spent about $250.00 on it considering I didnt have to buy a PSU or Video Card.
I was also wondering if my PSU is powerful enough.

    120 gb ssd
    1 tb wd hdd
    GPU- GTX 480 or 7850
