Not a bad list of parts but I would change the following;

The video card for one that is 256-bit as you will get better video quality.

The brand of PSU, stick with a proven brand such as Antec, Corsair, OCZ or Seasonic.

The Ram, upgrade to 2 X 4GB sticks if your budget will allow it as this will improve all round performance.

You have not list an OS such as Windows 7 64-bit, what will you you be using.

Great PSU but over and above what you need and quite expensive.

Good GPU but with the cash saved from only purchasing a PSU that you need you could look at other GPU options.

In what country will the parts be purchased, we will see what we can find online for you.

Tip:
If you have something to add while waiting for a reply use the edit tab – bottom right of the dialogue input box and this will ensure that no information that you provide is overlooked (this can happen if your topic has more than one page).

What PSU would you suggest? i thought that i would need a bigger PSU if i was ever going to upgrade components.

PS. I love in the USA, but the parts will be purchased online. probably from newegg.com

It depends on what you intend to upgrade in the future as to the PSU you should obtain now, for the present video card 500W is plenty but if you can get a more powerful PSU for the same cost it makes sense to take advantage, a PSU that more than covers your requirement Here and the best card that I could find for you Here
