Well they will all work at first glance(broken links there by the way) but there are a couple of improvements that could be made. The gfx card is PCI but im sure that mobo has PCI-E which is not only much much better but allows you to choose a greater range of more appropriate cards(the one you picked is not really for the home user). The ram you want to buy in a matched pair not two seperate sticks, it usually works out faster and you can run the ram dual channel that way so it is significantly faster.
I couldnt see a core type there for the CPU yo want a venice core. And the PSU is a little overboard you will only need a 500W at the most, a 400W would be able to run the system quite happily.
