I wouldn't trust that PSU :) Even though your build wouldn't be classed as "high-end", I would look at one of the better brand-name PSU's. Something like from Antec, Thermaltake, Silverstone, OCZ, and a few others should be much nicer. Look for one that is at least 500-550 Watts, and the higher efficiency, the better. I'm never buying a sub-80% efficiency PSU again!

Also, you need to add an optical drive to that build. A DVD Burner is the most common nowadays, and they can be picked up pretty cheap.

EDIT: If you post some links for the parts you're ordering, I can help you find a better choice PSU, and a DVD Burner.

If your going with that don't expect to do any upgrades in the future unless their are not major cause that will definitely now have enough juice. I also recommend the one James suggested or the 700 watt version.

While the earthwatt is a good PSU especially for it's class, for 3 euros more, the OCZ PSU has better price/performance and is a better PSU, with room to upgrade.
