You should be good to go though the case may be a bit small try a medium tower, leaves room for upgrading :p

Well if its an all around PC those specs are pretty good, but if its mainly for gaming then I would have done things a little differently. You can get a cheaper hardrive and psu, as well as possibly getting an i3 instead of i5. With that money saved I would upgrade the video card to a 7870.

That's only if its primarily a gaming build though.

What ehanger said, though if you were going to get an i3, you might as well get an AM3+ Mobo and a Phenom II x4 965 BE.
