Cpu, Mobo, ram, hddrive and graphics are fine.. I would go bigger on the psu, 350watt may be a little light... pump that up to a 550 or 600 watt..

Also I never use the boxed cooling that comes with the CPU.. I find them a little too small ...

A really good Matx case is the Corsair Obsidian 350D (i own one)
Also for that you'd need a seperate power supply.
