I would suggest;

A video card with 1GB of memory not 512MB

DDR3 1333MHz memory, not DDR2 800

A better PSU, (Corsair 400CX)

A Samsung F3 500GB, the fastest SATA drive.

A case that does not have a PSU, as you are buying a seperate PSU there is no point and the pennies saved will go towards slightly better hardware.
